Period: 1900 – 1909


Franz Hofstätter’s work for Johann Loetz Witwe after 1900 is not entirely clear to this day. It occurs sporadically that a designer mentions his name on a design making attributions very difficult to trace. The reason of this could be that the produced glass was not immediately considered as very important art glass and therefor it was not needed to describe everything very detailed.

Our beautiful vase is of the decor Flamarion and is a variation of the highly successful Titania genre that had been in production since 1905. Flamarion made its appearance in the year 1907 and can be attributed to the designer Franz Hofstätter. This attribution is substantiated by his name entry in the invoice book in the period 1908 – 1911 for the delivery of objects for the Exhibition “Österreichischer Kunstgewerbe” in Vienna 1911 / 1912.

The vase is blown in light blue glass with silver titania glass threads in a crackle pattern with a decoration of drawn vertical green strips with silver titania threads in a flame pattern.

The design of this vase is included in the literature and marked as Series II Production Number 5222.
