Austrian Art Nouveau Pearlescent Iridescent Glass Vase by Rindskopf, Kralik or Loetz. Circa 1900-1910


This large & impressive vase uses crystal cased pink-opal pearlescent glass to produce a fabulous lustre to the surface.

It is Austrian Art Nouveau period glass and it was made at a factory of quality. Kralik, Rindskopf or Loetz.

The making of this vase was a skilled procedure. Two layers of glass have been used. Firstly the soft shade of pink which whilst still hot was iridised to give the glass a shimmering pearl-opalescence. The entire was then thinly coated with clear crystal so to trap the shimmering surface between the layers.

Only then was the final bulbous shape of the vase produced, by blowing the glass into a releasing peg-mold.

The bulging shapes, escaping though the gaps of each peg, whilst blowing with control by the glass maker.

The translucent casing of crystal provides weight to the vase whilst also capturing the wonderful hues held within.

The interior of the vase has also been wrythen patterned to add more optic subtleties to the glass.

As is the traditional method of producing these Austrian glass vase types, the top was cut to height at time of manufacture and left unpolished which is common. The tops of these vase styles have a rough feel to the rims which again is common and acceptable.

It is a beautiful Austrian Art Nouveau glass vase circa 1900 – 1910 produced by one of three factories and the major exponents of iridescent glass anywhere in Europe of its period.

You will not be disappointed with this vase. Its colours & forms are stunning.
