LOETZ Astraea Vase Fantastic Shape WONDERFUL Platinum Blue Hued Iridescense
LOETZ Astraea Vase Fantastic Shape with WONDERFUL Iridescense! This lovely hand blown Loetz Astraea vase is one of the finer examples in this line I've had the pleasure to own. The organic Art Nouveau shape with four dimples around the parameter, quad folded rim and the Platinum Blue Iridescent fuming are as good as they come! Astraea has a Candia ground with light Silberiris finish and honey-brown marvered spots. The base has a polished pontil as is typical of better quality Loetz glass. There's an example with the same shape shown on the Loetz reference site, in the fourth row down that cannot hold a candle to this example, it looks dull and sloppy, whereas my example just exudes quality, the glass blower was 100% on his A game the day he hand crafted this spectacular example! No chips or other issues to note. Lovely, problem free example of a rare, piece of LOETZ Austrian Art Glass. I've included lots of photos, please take a look and please message me if you have any questions.
