Out of stock

SKU: S1903-011 Category:


Loetz glass – A statuesque Art Nouveau compote with a threaded iridescent glass bowl with green and blue and gold flashes and a crimped-edged bowl. The bowl is decorated in red or purple threads. A pure Art Nouveau design. The gilded base is a statue of the “ideal” woman of the period. It is not bronze, rather of a white metal.  She is dressed in a swirling and pooling robe. Large flowers at her waist are easily mistaken for butterflies.

I do not overemphasize the qualities of an item.  This Loetz compote is nothing less than magnificent. I am completely taken with it.

Dimensions: The bowl is 10” wide. The total Height: 17.5″ The figure: 14”

Date: 1900-1920 (I am no expert at dating glass.)

Origin: Loetz, Czechoslovakia

Condition: Remarkably great condition with loss of gilding on base. There are normal slight imperfections in the glass. The bowl may tilt slightly due to the washer under the bowl. Please see photos as they are an integral part of the condition report and ask any questions that you have about the item so that we can satisfy you.

Provenance: Estate

Maker: Loetz, Czechoslovakia
