A Loetz cabinet vase with flaring rim. The glass is milky yellow bodied 'Candia' with silver-blue 'Silberiris' smooth surface iridescence overlaid with applied pure silver clover leaf décor.

Some Loetz vases with applied silver décor were executed in Europe but the majority originate from America on vases acquired directly from the Loetz factory.

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.

TWO SUPERB LARGE LOETZ CRETE PAPILLON VASES

Loetz. LOETZ SILVER x2

A STUNNING PAIR OF LOETZ CRETE GLATT IRIDESCENT VASES WITH APPLIED JUNGENDSTIL STYLE SILVER DÉCOR

(click on picture)

A superb pair of formal cabinet vases by Loetz in the subtle 'Crete Glatt' decor and overlaid with immaculate Sterling Silver floral panels in the Jungendstil style. These are probably the finest pair of silver overlay Loetz vases that we have ever been able to offer. The silver is invariably of a high pure quality as this is easier to work on glass and the silver workmanship on this pair of vases 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 between the two vases.

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 pair with the exquisitely detailed panel designs are much rarer examples produced in Europe.
