Originally, this rare Loetz vase was produced without its six indentions as part of a series for the Winter Exhibition of Vienna in 1898. For this original form, see the book, Loetz Austria 1900 by Waltraud Neuwirth, page 257.
Then, in 1902 - the form was revisited, but with the feature of six distinct indentions that encircle the vase’s shoulder. Reference: Das Bohmische Glas Band IV, page 52 and Loetz Bohemian Glass 1880-1940 (Hatje Cantz).
Possibly a Candia Silberiris, this example produced in amber green glass has an iridescent finish that shades from silvery blue to green-gold and pink.
Stands approximately 8” tall. The rim has an irregularity that may appear in the photo as a chip, but is not; it has a smooth surface, and is under the iridescence. Also, a small “glob” of glass on the interior of the vase shows up as a dark spot on the lower half of the body. No damage or restoration.
