OCEANIK SQUAT LOBED VASE PN II-257. The pattern is referred to as "Oceanik", which has a wave optic "Wellenoptisch" design on colorless ground with green-blue embedded granules. The form is a squat vase with bulging lobes, shape PN II-257. It has an oil spot finish with lovely iridescence.The glass is highly reactive to a black light and glows bright green. This wonderful Art Nouveau vase stands about 4 1/4" tall and measures approximately 6 5/8" wide. The underside of the base has a polished pontil and the top rim is fire polished. It's guaranteed to be an authentic Loetz vase circa 1904 and NOT a reproduction or imitation. Condition of this Loetz vase is EXCELLENT with no chips or cracks.
I noticed one small rough spot along the top rim (see last photo), a very minor imperfection. The underside of the base has a few scratches and shelf wear that you would expect to see on a 120-year old piece. Overall, this Oceanik vase looks fantastic and displays beautifully.It would make a fine addition to any collection. Please take a close look at the many photos I've provided and judge condition for yourself.
