Loetz 'Malachit' marbled glass vase C: 1893 Very Rare

Offered is this rare hand-enameled, marbled glass vase, made by Loetz around 1893 - this 'Malachit' glass was meant to emulate the natural stone, malachite. Loetz presented 'Malachit' glass vases in the World Symposiums in Chicago and Antwerp in 1893 and 1894 respectively. This vase is 10 1/2 inches (26,5 cm) tall, 6 1/2 inches (16,5 cm) wide and 4 inches (10 cm) deep. It is in very good condition (expected base wear and fading of gilt around top-rim - see pictures), without chips, cracks or repairs. Unsigned, except for a cursive number in its polished pontil - such cursive numbering system was used by Loetz in the early years (see last picture; also, please refer to page 53 of Ricke, Ploil & Mergl's book, 'Loetz Bohemian Glass 1880-1940').
