LOETZ, Johan 1888-90 Exhibition Award Winning Piece 1 of 1 Gorgeous, Perfect.... Rare, Unique, Amazing Design by Franz Hofstätter, during the zenith of Loetz Art Nouveau glass was epitomized by the so-called Phänomen series of designs, much of it designed by Hofstatter, which won a Grand Prix (alongside Tiffany, Gallé, Daum and Lobmeyr) at the Paris World's Exposition in 1900. With a Iridescent Moss Green, Copper wire wrapped dramatically, whole vase was then put inside of a Bronze 18-22K Gold Gilded over Enclosure.
