    A rare Loetz Olympia Iridescent Glass Vase c.1910.  The vase has a rounded conical body and tall cylindrical neck with flared rim - copying a Dresser design of the Aesthetic Movement. Characteristic iridescent surface sheen covering the exterior of the vase. Polished pontil mark to base. The vase measures 21.5 cm in height and 13.5 cm diameter at its base.
    The vase is in excellent condition commensurate with age and with no chips or cracks. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.

     
    Probably designed by Max Emanuel after designs by Christopher Dresser. Drawings of Dresser's designs for James Couper & Sons (featured in 'The Studio' in 1898 for his landmark Clutha range) were discovered in the Loetz archive - showing how common plagiarism was at the time. The general form with, its attenuated neck was inspired by Eastern and Middle-Eastern objects Dresser saw in the South Kensington (now V&A) Museum. Dresser also stated that he was often inspired by Roman glass - an item of very similar form can still be seen in the British Museum.
