This is one of my favorites, and it shows my strategy of finding more than one "important" element in the same article. This piece is a "Jack in the Pulpit" form, with a characteristic Loetz snake motif, on top of a very well done Phanomen Gre-29 decor - three for one! But wait, it's signed too - and the signature shows the proper vertical lines associated with a genuine signature (see I love the buttery golden color of the glass, and the craftsmenship is top-notch on this one. It's not very tall; the only minus for this vase (6" tall, which is average for Loetz). Otherwise this is a special piece of Loetz from around 1899 to 1900. Enjoy!

    I agree, three for one or is that 5!! Rare shape, nice snake, good condition, great signature and a rare PG 7773.

    Hah, I though my PG 29 attribution was questionable, but there are many similar genres, true? So you say this is PG 7773, not 29? I just looked it up ( and I see what you mean! How do you tell between 7773 and 29? 7773 is a pre-1900 genre. Does the signature make it pre 1900? Thanks again! Dan

    Both decors are early. PG 7773 was first produced in 1899 and PG 29 in 1900. I would say the easiest way to tell them apart is PG 7773 only has 1 row of "windows" while PG 29 has 2 or more rows of windows. Cantz (if you don't have it, you will want to get this book) indicates that the LA signature was used for a short period from 1899 to 1903.

    Fantastic I must be picking up on something's as my first thought was Loetz but really did not know. All I did know was that I loved there colour & style, very lucky you.

    Thanks Zowie; I agree that Loetz has a certain look, and once you get familiar with Loetz it becomes easier to spot. It can't be described, but you know it when you see it. Thanks again!
