For Sale I have a wonderful Art Glass Vase made by Loetz of Bohemia which is now modern day Czechoslovakia. I have a Brilliant Gold Iridescent "Candia Papillon" Decoration Vase.
The Vase Displays a Wonderful Mottled Gold Iridescence with an elongated Gold Iridescence Texture applied directly to the exterior surface. The decoration when lit, looks like elongated oil spots running through the vessel. This appears to be a decoration that was applied to clear glass. It is a wonderful Technique that Loetz developed and appropriately named "Papillon". The quality of this glass is comparable to L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile of New York. These two competed heavily for the Art Nouveau Glass Market in the United States at the turn of the Century.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The Vase is not signed but it does have a wonderful nicely polished top rim. This also means it was blown from the top side and not the bottom. This is very common as many of the European Glass Houses executed their vases in this technique. This decoration has kind of a Deco Style to it. I also want to mention that the Gold Iridescence is so strong it looks like pure gold. My camera could not capture the Brilliance this vase displays.
If you collect works of Austrian Jugendstil Art Nouveau glass, or American Art Glass by Tiffany and Steuben, please consider this work of art. This is a documented Decoration on the www.loetz.com web site. This is probably the best site for documentation of Loetz Decors. They also show Loetz's European Contemporaries styles as well. This Vase will certainly become a conversation piece for discussion.
This is a quality piece of Art Glass and I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. This Vase was made Circa 1900-1920.
