Although not iridescent or signed, this piece looks exactly like Loetz's work to my eye. There aren't many chased pieces like it attributed to him (or anyone else) but the -threads and ground tension look right. Measuring 5 1/2 inches tall by 6 1/2 inches in diameter at the rim, it is flawless.
The small circular impression on the pontil scar is not a chip, but may be the end of a polished down thread. The exterior translucent green glass is tucked in by glossy black glass threads that completely encircle it.
The interior is chased with smooth, clean milk glass, and make it ideal for a flower arrangement or small potted plant, if you prefer art that functions. It could certainly elevate the ordinary holiday poinsettia. Thanks to my grandmother, it spent it's previous life at leisure, unmarked by traditional vessel work. I remember it serving as an unadorned focal point in one of her lighted display cabinet.
This piece is weighty at 2 pounds and 9.3 ounces but it will be packed with great care. It's only negative issue is that it's been packed away far too long. It's a terrific example of Art Nouveau glass that should be seen and enjoyed! Please check out other uncommon items currently offered from our family's estate.
