For sale is a lovely art glass vase made by Loetz Klostermuehle of Bohemia which is now the modern day Czech Republic. The pattern is called "Medici" and the form is a trefoil flower form vase. The vase has some size as it stands 7" tall and has a diameter of 4 3/4" at the shoulder. The bottom or base of the vase has a diameter of 2 3/8". The top crimped areas measure 3 1/4"- 3 1/2".

The vase displays a tall tapered shoulder form with a trefoil or tri fold top flower form opening. The vase has an outstanding "Medici" decor pattern that displays 3 colors of iridescence on a purple amber base glass. The vase has a wide elongated gold oil spot decoration with tails surrounding the vase. These oil spots start at the top just under the lip and run down the sides and under the bottom edge to the center pontil. This is applied on an amber base glass with the mid section to the top lip being a purple, amethyst base glass. When you look at the vase unlit is shows very strong purple or fuchsia iridescence at the top. It bleeds into a purple blue green with gold amber elongated mottles at the bottom. When held to the light you can see the elongated gold oil spot decoration and the distinct definition of the tails that almost looks like feathers reaching towards the bottom edge. The vase is further embellished with a silver overlay top lip and neck. The pattern in the silver is a very pleasing one of a Water Lily and Lily Pad with a heavily reeded cluster of leaves. It appears to have one design for each lobe.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The bottom has a counter sunk polished pontil. This is the finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass. This means this vase was blown into a mold from the top then cut and put back into the fire to get a rolled fired polished top edge and then the top was formed into its trefoil shape. The vase was then sent to a silversmith for the silver to be applied. This vase is unsigned as is typical of most Loetz vases. It more than likely had a paper label at one time. There appears to be numbers scratched into the bottom that reads "2/452". This was Loetz's way of marking his pattern numbers on special decorations such as this one. This is also known as a Phanomen Decor and it carries this numerical pattern mark. There is no doubt that this is Loetz as this decorated pattern technique is a well documented pattern design. The vase is very clean outside and in and it shows minimal signs of use.

This is a very nice silver overlay Medici vase. Not a commonly found form in a popular color. I'm quite sure the buyer will be more than pleased with their purchase. This vase was made circa 1902-1905 and is considered the early years for Loetz.
