LOETZ ART NOUVEAU VASE WITH BRONZE SNAKE STAND
Very rare Art Nouveau iridescent Loetz glass small amphora, decor pattern candia pg6893. The bronze frame in the form of a serpent.
There is an odd factory imperfection to the glass. If you look at the photos it looks as if the end of the amphora has been broken off and stuck back on. It has not. The end bit is part of the vase and also it would be the same size as the rest of the vase, had it been broken away, but it sticks out a little. This has had this end added when the glass was made and a part added when it was still hot. It can be seen that the decor flows into the tip and is perfect. Very close inspection confirms all this.
