Loetz Silberiris Diaspora Vase, circa 1902

This is a stunning Loetz (Lötz) art glass vase. This piece was made by Loetz Klostermuehle of Bohemia, the modern day Czech Republic. This short, yellow/gold iridescent vase with a ruffle rim and ground pontil would be the perfect addition to your glass collection!

This décor style, or pattern, is known as Candia Silberiris Diaspora. This specific décor style features a charming texture throughout the piece, which resembles the moon craters. This vase is a lovely size, it is approximately 4 1/2 inches tall and has an approximate diameter of 3 inches at its widest point. The iridescence in this piece is wonderful. The color of the vase changes slightly in different light. In low-light spaces the vase appears yellow, whereas in light filled spaces the vase takes on a golden hue. This vase is not signed which is common for Loetz pieces. This vase is a wonderful example of early Loetz work. This piece is from the early 1900’s, it was most likely made in 1902. This piece is in excellent condition and is free from cracks, chips, and flea bites.
