In 1898, the first glasses with the then newly developed "Phenomen Genre" decor were presented and were a complete success from the very beginning. Many exhibitions in various museums followed, including a very important exhibition in the Austrian Museum of Art and Industry (ÖMKI) in 1898. This vase is one of the glasses from the collection for the summer exhibition of the Bavarian Arts and Crafts Association in Munich (Bayrischer Kunstgewerbeverein in München) in 1899, one year after this important presentation in Vienna. The extraordinary slender calabash shape is wrapped in an eightfold, regularly wavy silver oxide ribbon. The delicate body shows a fine colour gradient from a bronze to a Russian green ground, creating a wonderfully reduced plant impression. The vase is thus a classic representative of the early Phenomen decor.
