    Description

    Loetz collectors should be familiar with the shape of this vase, as an example – although with a different decor – is prominently pictured on the spine of the standard Loetz reference “Pattern catalog”.
    The tall vase is part of a series dating back in 1898 with a hexagonal body transitioning to a round cross-section*. It is a very fine example of the glass-factory experimenting with innovative shapes.
    In this early Phenomen Genre 7501, the vertical drawing of the decoration with its lancet-like elements emphasizes the slender vessel’s shape. Depending on how the light falls, its elongated threads shimmer silvery or more bluish.
    The vase is a beautiful example of Loetz glassworks from the period before participating in Paris World Exposition 1900.
