ANTIQUE LOETZ BOHEMIAN GLASS SHELL VASE IRIDESCENT - For Sale

ANTIQUE LOETZ BOHEMIAN GLASS SHELL VASE IRIDESCENT
Price: $2000.00
Exceptional antique glass vase in the form of a sea shell. Made by Loetz in Bohemia / Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic) 19th century. Measures 11 1/4 inches tall. Sea shell theme. The vase is a pointed sea shell standing upside down, enclosed in an iridescent clear glass trio of swirling, fluted seaweed that tapers down to the base, in the same iridescent, clear glass that echoes the organic sea creature theme. The main shell is composed of incredibly-coloured and textured glass: depending on the light, the background is in shades of pinks and oranges with raised organic looking ''scales'' in iridescent silvers and golds. All colours deepen, become more metallic looking and shade to blues, depending on the light and angle. The shape is quite luscious - a bowl on top seemingly torn open and curling backwards to show the inside / reverse of the glass. Moulded with bends and twists - all generously rounded. No signature seen. Very good condition with some roughage on the edges of the base, commensurate with the age.
