For Sale I have a wonderful Art Glass Vase made by Pallmé-König of Czechoslovakia. Pallme-Konig was Jugendstil's love affair with shape and this can be clearly seen by this cabinet Vase. In or around 1900, Wilhelm Habel, co-owner of the glassworks with Josef and Theodor Pallme-König obtained "a patent for a process to produce surface-decorated glass, a special type of decoration with glass threads encircling the vase" The base glass is a deep and wonderful Amethyst purple. The iridescence is just outstanding as you can see deep beautiful hues of Blues and Purples from the middle to the top half. The lower section from the middle to the bottom displaying a gold on purple iridescent.
The piece is unsigned and more than likely had a paper label at one time. The Top of the Vase is polished to a nice even smooth finish. This means the piece was top blown as there is no Polished Pontil. This is where it was cut from the blowing pipe. The polished finish only shows the mark of quality workmanship in glass.
Durand Art Glass from Vineland New Jersey tried to copy this technique but their version was more of a spidering or webbing with thinner threads of glass. Many of these type vases are missing their glass threads in numerous locations on the vase. That is not the case with Pallme-König pieces. They actually fired the threads of glass so the threads actually fused with the main body. Truly a wonderful piece and I'm sure this will enhance any Art Glass Collection including Loetz.
