Loetz was the premier Bohemian art glass manufacturer during the Art Nouveau period (or Jugendstil, as it was called in German-speaking countries) from roughly 1890 to 1920. Founded in 1840 by Johann Loetz in what is now the Czech Republic, the company became known for its innovative techniques, organic forms, and bold use of color.
The Papillon design from 1898 was produced in the following colors: Candia, Crete, cobalt, dark blue, orange, ruby or opal ribbed ground, marvered silvery yellow granules. One of the most common of all Loetz decors, especially in cobalt, Candia or Crete. This is a beautifully executed glass piece perfect to display or use. This vase has beautiful color and shape. Perfect cabinet vase. No evidence of repair or modification was detected.
Wonderful vase in that it is no chips, no cracks, no scratches. Bubble burst on side that looks like a black mark. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
