Venditore: glenns469 (1.949) 100%, Luogo in cui si trova l'oggetto: Edgware, Middlesex, Spedizione verso: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Numero oggetto: 283181402465 Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 DESCRIPTION: Absolutely stunning and exquisite hand blown and enameled silhouette vase from the world acclaimed prestigious Loetz factory, in a striking tango orange colouration displaying exquisite black silhouettes of three female dancers in a variety of differing poses. The striking tangerine or tango orange, cased to clear vase displays a certain style and sophistication which is no less matched by the eloquent beauty of its three silhouetted subjects. Loetz was founded by J.B.Eisner as far back as 1836 and was taken over by Susanna, widow of Johann Lotz in 1852 whereby over the years the company name has been anglicised to Loetz. The factory was taken over by Max Ritter Von Spaun in 1879 until 1914. Notable designers include Hans Bolek, Leopald Bauer, Dagobert Peche, Otto Prutscher and the incomparable Josef Hoffman, Koloman Moser and Michael Powolny - to name but a very few. The company went onto produce dazzling art glass of all descriptions and world acclaimed, festival and competition winning pieces which are collected worldwide and by museums from London to Milan and The Corning Glass Museum in New York. Loetz forms were extremely creative and inventive whereby many were influenced by classical, Persian or Roman models. Perhaps, arguably, solid bodies and controlled irridescence were their very hallmark. However simpler forms with highly contrasting colours of tango, yellow, red and black were used by many designers and a certain Michael Powolny whose work is highly valued and has remained as relevant today as the day they were conceived. Silhouette vases of the period were mainly produced in a bright sunflower yellow, tango orange and red whereby I have on only one occasion seen an azure blue example. Their exquisite, enameled hand finished subjects often included male and female courtiers, dancers and musicians to name but a very few. We have collected a whole host of these stunning pieces over the years whereby many examples took butterflies, swallows, cranes and various other birds and insects in flight as their main inspiration. The thin to medium walled vase starts with a slightly sunken, rough base pontil whose outer perimeter displays an array of small, minute and light surface scratches, denoting light wear, commensurate with its extreme age and limited display only usage - please see below or the last photo. The piece is cased to a clear glass which is best viewed to its circular lower reaches. The piece ascends in elegant fashion to form a slightly tapering cylindrical shape to its main body. The latter is eventually met and surmounted with a very generous, splayed mouthrim. The latter displays an undulating form whose rim is also finished in a highly contrasting jet black enamel. I must apologise as the photos do the piece little justice and are not truly representative of the vases delicacy and exquisite charm whereby the robustness of these enchanting vases have truly lasted the test of time. The piece is sublimely and richly enameled with supreme artistry and creative flair which is heightened by the contrasting black silhouetted composition of three dancers, set against its superlative tango orange ground. The vase is decorated with the silhouettes of three female dancers in a variety of elegant poses that portray movement and a divine femininity. The first dancer exhibits a large flowing dress, whose shapely flared dress is decorated with large circular polka dots. The dancer hold the dress up at one end to show off its patternation whereby fine thread like details are picked out in her hair, shoes and bodice. The second figure reveals a slightly differing flared dress whereby she is portrayed with a leaf shaped fan and elegant, elongated court shoes. Such is the sublime attention to detail that the artist has even attempted to hand paint the slip of the undulating billowy dress. The third dancer displays a ruffled dress with multiple folds and layers that portrays the dancer in full flow whereby the feeling of movement and depth is duly achieved. Each of the three subjects are interspersed with delicate shrubs whereby a broad jet black ribbon grounds the three dancers. The piece has been hand painted with an extremely high degree of skill and artistry whereby its three subjects are also beautifully positioned and framed within the confines of the vases slender tapering form. Both natural and unnatural crescents of light shimmer and glisten from the vases cased base whilst arcing lagoons of light gently bathe the lower reaches of its undulating mouthrim. The vases thin to medium walls allow light to penetrate its walls creating a sublime semi transparent delicacy which is in direct contrast to its rigidity and robustness. The piece is just one of our large Loetz collection which incorporates many silhouetted examples in yellow, red and tango orange and consists of many studies including ballerinas, ladies in waiting and various sublime studies of birds in flight whereby a particular magical piece displaying swooping swallows comes to mind. The collection also, obviously, includes many irridescent pieces whereby we have hold Loetz and associated Austrian, Bavarian and Bohemian factories in very high regard. The vase has a sublime charm and femininity whose enchanting figures accentuate the creative use of the simple silhouette. Its very simplicity is just one of its many strengths whereby these exquisite hand painted works of art define the artistry and craftsmanship of Austrian and Bavarian factories & their multitude of creative designers and painters.
