The intricate, organic form of this vase, crafted by the Johann Loetz Witwe company, exemplifies the design trends that emerged shortly after the resounding success at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900. The Loetz decor, known as Cytisus or “gold rain” due to its iridescent dots, stands out for its refinement and artistic flair, underscoring the exceptional quality characteristic of Johann Loetz Witwe’s productions during this period.

Executed in the ground color “Neurot,” this Cytisus vase features randomly drawn, wave-patterned blue threads of glass adorned with iridescent dots. The elaborate, organic shape and the carefully crafted indentations on the body attest to the glassblower’s skillful artistry in free-forming this object. The meticulous execution of the design highlights the mastery of Johann Loetz Witwe during this era, showcasing their commitment to both aesthetic sophistication and technical excellence.
