From 1905, Series II Production Number II-2636 Empire vase. 5 3/4 inches high, 4 5/8 inches across the base. This decor is really beautiful in any light. In normal sunlight the uranium oxide in the mix causes it to glow without need for a UV light. I am always amazed when I find one of these without any damage at all. The drapes and balls are so fragile, one small bump would do it in. In fact, I bought this to replace one with damage.

The photo of the paper pattern is taken from Loetz/Series II by Jitka Lneickova

    Thanks, Gary. This is the one I told you about. In the photos it looked dainty, but it's a decent size.

    You've excelled here, dlfd911!
    Loetz architecture!
    You have a pair? Or more?
  3. dlfd911 dlfd911, 5 years ago
    No, not a pair. The other I refer to is another Empire, but in vase form. They seem to be bringing high prices on eBay lately.

    Incredible! I have never seen this one before, and it is amazing to be in one piece - the drapes look so fragile! Was this form only used for Empire? I suspect so.
  5. dlfd911 dlfd911, 5 years ago
    According to the text under the paper pattern, it was only made in Empire, though there were a few different variants.
