One of the most important and successful collaborations of Johann Loetz Witwe is the collaboration with the Viennese retailer E. Bakalowits. This collaboration lasted 30 years and took place in the period 1890 to the 1920’s. The most important and successful period of this collaboration took place during the years just after 1900. The craftsmanship of glass blowing and the creativity of the designers commissioned by E. Bakalowits resulted in advanced designs. Many of these unique objects were designed by Koloman Moser and Robert Holubetz and where exhibed in art exhibitions such as the eighth winter exhibition of the Wiener Seccession.

This vase was designed by Koloman Moss in the year 1903 in a decor that was executed exclusively for E. Bakalowits in Vienna, namely “Vulkan”. The design of this vase is probably Koloman Moser’s one of the most logically consistent and revolutionary design, designed around the time the Wiener Werkstätte was founded in 1903.
