vase, Johann Loetz-Witwe, Phenomen Genre 7993, ca. 1899
With its classic form, documented in the pattern cut from 1899, this example can be well placed in the group of those glasses produced before the 1900 Paris World’s Fair. The baluster-shaped body and narrow chimney neck of this elegant vase form emphasize the elaborate decor underlaid in ruby red. The distinctively fine interlacing threads enhance the dynamism in the rhythmic surface design. Phenomen Genre 7993 belongs to the rare decor variants. In addition, the design on ruby red ground, was produced by Loetz only until 1899, which makes this vase a very desirable collector’s item.
