This is a beautiful Petal Bowl from Loetz. It is a fabulous iridescent bowl that is mainly light blue with hints of green, purple and dark blue. It shimmers and changes colors as the light hits it. The form is Loetz Petal Bowl shape, which is a squat orb shape with a ruffled rim that closes in on it's self. The piece is unsigned as are most Loetz. I believe the surface to be cobalt siberiris or creta siberiris as it hovers somewhere in between the two. It is 6 1/2" across and 3" high the pontil is polished. It has two small issues; there is some wearing away of the iridescence at the bottom of the bowl, and when it was made and separated from the blowing rod it got stressed at the separation point. Neither are structural and do not deter from the beauty of the piece. j
