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 executed in the decor “Luna” is designed by an unknown designer in 1901 for E. Bakalowits. The decor “Luna” is easily to recognizable by the greenish color of the glass due to the addition of a small amount of uranium to the glass.

The Luna decor with the greenish base and beautiful gradient to blue top is exclusively made for E. Bakalowits.

This vase is produced under production number 85/3963 in commision for E.Bakalowits.
