This beauty stands 4" tall but its one of the rarest in our collection. I have seen only one other in the vault in the MAK in Vienna in a different form. Oil spotting with randow applied reddish brown (volcano) colored waves outlined by dark red/brown lines. The silver blue iridescence is helped along by the clear ground. Produced for the Viennese retailer Bakalowitz and Sons in 1901.

Hey Tony, I really would love to see this one in person (just saying, not going to be in Chicago for awhile). Hope you hold on to it! This one is incredible!

Loetz Phänomen Genre 299 in Ormolu Bronze Mount

An unusual Loetz P.G. 299. It doesn't have a pontil so I assume it was produced to wear the ornate ormolu bronze mount from the start. Impressed into the underside of the mount are three hallmarks: an 8, F, and S, all separated from each other. I have not been able to identify a maker of the mount nor a Loetz production line drawing yet. It stands 11 1/2" tall.
