Spectacular early Loetz iridescent gold, floriform / jack-in-the-pulpit vase with large wide twelve petal flower shaped face and applied textured gold glass leaves and tendrils to ribbed glass stem. It stands on an elaborate six petal translucent ribbed glass base with fine tendrils going up the vase's central stem. This method of attaching the base to the stem is exclusive to Loetz and is often found in its flower as well as shell shaped vases. Early Loetz production included pieces with a clear Venetian style pincer work, also known as Baroque glass, influence, one that is obvious in this piece. We have seen similar Loetz pieces described as Candia Silberiris and Clutha. In very good used condition with inconspicuous repair to applied leaf as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 8 1/2" tall by 4 3/4" flower diameter (22 cm by 12 cm) approximately.
