Luxury Design, Past & Present
Glasses of the manufacturer Loetz range among the most important pieces of Art Nouveau glass in the world. Because of the importance of this enterprise every big Art Nouveau museum has some pieces by Loetz in their inventory. Objects by Loetz are only competited by glasses from the French glass manufactors in Paris or by vases made by L.C. Tiffany.
This vase is a beautiful example for a Loetz vase with the medici decor. She has a pink basic with a wonderful iridescent. The Silberkroeselzungen are more colourful and glitter from gold to turquoise to pink.The shape of the vase was used for many different deorations but the medici decoration on this vase is one of the most colourful we have ever seen.
This unusual high vase with the exceptional colour is a real eyecatcher!
