The manufacturer Johann Loetz Witwe led by Max Ritter von Spaun and Eduard Prochaska introduced “Extruded handles” designs in the year 1902. These objects have glass threads that are pulled out of the glass during the blowing process and then attached at another point. This technique was a huge challenge for the glassblower and could only be successfully performed by the best glassblowers from the glass hut. Because of the challenging process, but certainly also because of the risk of breakage due to stresses in the glass during cooling in the cooling furnace, no large numbers were produced of these objects. It should also be mentioned that the fragility of these objects is very high and the risk of breakage over the past 120 years is significant.

This rare and desirable vase was designed in the year 1902 and is mentioned in the literature as a Series II Production Number 2-621-5.
