    When this 6-3/4 inch Loetz tricolor vase appeared on ebay, someone wrote in to say that the buttons were remnants of broken handles, which seemed to discourage other bidders. I was aware of similar pieces in Ricke II, so I knew that they were part of the decoration (see Ricke II pages 134, 135, and 146). So I bought it. I cannot tell if it is foil under the clear buttons or iridescent glass. It looks more to me like iridescent glass. This is the only piece with buttons that I have ever seen in my 30 years of collecting. Perhaps someone who has another would post theirs. (2002)

      What? Those are definitely cut off handles. You don't want that in your pristine collection. I'll take it off your hands!!! ;)

      Wonderful! This is the first of this shape I have ever seen. Great colors too. Another 10.

      Wow! Wonderful piece. I wonder if the buttons could have been made with aventurin similar to the aventurin that Loetz added to the peacock vase's eyes.

      LoetzDance-The buttons are made of clear colorless glass with the iridescent flakes sandwiched between the button and the vase., therefore not aventurine. Actually the iridescent flakes are indistinguishable from the other papillon spots on the piece, except that they are pulled apart.

      Wow. How did I miss this one?! Amazing.
