Luxury Design, Past & Present
This vase shows an early example of the glass manufacture Johann Loetz-Witwe Klostermuehle. The design of the Phenomen Gre 7499/I is amongst the oldest known decoration variants and was mainly used in the years around 1900. The elegant Jugendstil shape along with the shimmering, complex decoration structure impressively shows the early creation period of Loetz during the Paris World Exhibition in 1900.
