This is a three handle Loetz vase that I bought from Germany a few years back, it has an inscription that reads "Der lieben Lina zum 20 geburtstage von Jhren eltern". It roughly translates to To: To darling Lina on the 20th birthday from her parents (thanks for correction). As you can see, the base it is marked with a date that coincides with the making of the vase perfectly... 1925.
The sides are decorated with things she like to do like walking in nature, drawing at a table and riding a toy horse. This piece was probably ordered or personalized by a shop or maybe even by the glass maker himself (giving it as a gift). It is signed by the enameler but I can't make it out. Poor Lina, if she got this vase at twenty in 1925 she would be about 108. I feel like this piece should have been treasured by her grand kids.
This vase is proof "you can't take it with you" ...also a great way to show that you love and remember someone.
