Loetz Pewter Mounted Iridescent Glass Vase*
Pale blue and gold coloured iridescent glass vase in the Hermedes II decor, secured in a stylish Art Nouveau pewter mount incorporating two handles.
The glass itself is of a bulbous shape, narrowing towards the neck before flaring into a very attractively shaped quatrefoil rim. The lower part of the belly is shaped with a further detail of four indentations.
Undoubtedly from Loetz, but as is so often the case, unmarked.
The pewter mount however bears the marks – a crown and a rampant lion within a shield – of F. van Hauten of Bonn, who were regular manufacturing partners with the Loetz company during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the period when this vase would have been made. It is also numbered 1924.
Showing a polished pontil mark beneath and with a height of around 17 cm. Width between the handles is 16 cm.
