Loetz. LOETZ PINK SILBERIS S O 2

AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE PINK SILBERIRIS LOETZ VASE WITH APPLIED SILVER DÉCOR BY 'Le PIERRE'.

A Loetz cabinet vase with flaring rim produce from a very rare pink opaque glass body with rainbow 'Silberiris' smooth surface iridescence, overlaid with applied pure silver décor.

The smooth Loetz Silberiris décor was a popular base for the rare and much sought-after technique of applied silver decoration but the pink colour is exceedingly rare.

Some Loetz vases had the applied silver décor executed in Europe but the majority originate from America where the silver was applied on 'glass blanks' acquired directly from the Loetz factory. European applied silver design was often of a cubist or geometric style while American work was frequently floral and typically with art nouveau whiplash forms.

This vase is an early example of American 'silver overlay Loetz' signed with the signature of the famous 'Le Pierre' silversmith.

Loetz. LOETZ SILVER x2 single

A STUNNING LOETZ CRETE GLATT IRIDESCENT VASE WITH APPLIED JUNGENDSTIL STYLE SILVER DÉCOR

(Click on the picture for a view of a pair of these vases that we have recently sold.)

A superb formal cabinet vase by Loetz in the subtle 'Crete Glatt' decor and overlaid with immaculate Sterling Silver floral panels in the Jungendstil style.
The silver is invariably of a high pure quality as this is easier to work on glass and the silver workmanship on this vase is near perfection.

The Loetz 'Crete Glatt' décor was a very popular and subtle surface finish but was seldom used for the rare and much sought after technique of applied silver decoration. Because the 'Crete Glatt' décor is so subtle there are very delicate and fine variations in the colours of the iridescence as exhibited on this vase.

This applied silver in formal panels with an intricate floral design is of classic Jungendstil style executed in Bohemia. Normally silver overlay on Loetz vases was applied on blanks shipped to America but this vase with the exquisitely detailed panel designs is a much rarer example produced in Europe.

The Loetz Crete Papillon décor lends itself to the rare and much sought-after technique of applied silver and here a classic vase shape has a stunning art nouveau Dandelion floral design of flowers and leaves extensively executed over the surface of the vase.

This is a truly high quality Loetz silver overlay vase; we have seldom seen such extensive silver art work on a Loetz Papillon vase before.
