Offered is this rare iridescent glass vase in a metallic stand, made by Loetz around 1899 - the vase is done in their Phanomen Genre 6893 decor. Beautiful colors on the vase. The vase is fairly large: it is 7 inches (18 cm) tall and 7 inches wide. It is in fine condition. Polished pontil. Unsigned, as expected. The metallic (most likely bronze or bronze-colored copper) stand is 10 inches (25 cm) long and 5 inches (12,5 cm) high. The only mark found on the stand is a 'star' mark in a couple of places on the winged cherub (see second-last picture). There is age-appropriate tarnishing on the metal, as expected. The vase is guaranteed to have been made by Loetz. A vase of similar shape and motif (on a different stand) is shown on page 145 of Ricke et. al.'s book, 'Loetz Bohemian Glass 1880-1940' (shown in last picture here for your convenience). To quote Ricke, "This model's vessel form recalls the sham flower of the pitcher plant". According to Ricke, the maker of that stand has not been identified. Perhaps the vessel was offered with different stands - a winged cherub pulling the vessel makes the combination both interesting and attractive.
