For sale is a lovely vase made by Loetz Klostermuehle of Bohemia which is now the modern day Czech Republic. The pattern is called "Creta Formosa" and the form is a "4 lobed vase". This vase has some size to it as it stands 4 1/2" tall and 5 3/8" in diameter at its widest point outside lobes measurements.
This vase has that European flare to it as it has a manipulated top lip. The vase display an organic form with 4 lobes at the top opening. The base color of the glass is green or "Creta". The vase has a wonderful applied surface treatment of heavy wavy lines that surround the vase from top to bottom. These lines kind of resemble veins. This decoration has a blue hue iridescence to it and when looking at the vase it glows a blue green/teal in color.
The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is some tooling and manufacturing nuances but nothing too obtrusive. The vase is not signed but it does have a wonderful nicely fire polished top rim and counter sunk polished pontil. This is the finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass. This is a beautiful piece of art glass and I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. This vase was made circa 1900-1920.
If you collect works of Austrian Jugendstil Art Nouveau glass, or American Art Glass by Tiffany and Steuben, please consider this work of art. This is a documented decoration on the www.loetz.com web site. This is probably the best site for documentation of Loetz Decors. They also show Loetz's European contemporaries styles as well.
