In the last decade of the 19th century, the company Johann Loetz Witwe experienced tremendous growth in production and success under the leadership of Max Ritter von Spaun. In 1897, Tiffany’s Favrile-Glass presented its glass collection at the exhibitions in Reichenberg and Vienna, which served as a major source of inspiration for Loetz’s future designs. As a result, experimentation began, leading to the development of new techniques that resulted in the creation of new Phänomen genres and complex designs.

This vase is an excellent example of the high-quality glass art and artistic design of Johann Loetz Witwe’s early productions. The vase, blown in the shape of a flower bud and adorned with ribs across its entire surface, enhances the illusion of a bud almost in full bloom due to the free-formed mouth during the blowing process using tongs.

The glass flower bud rests on a mount that is organically shaped with a decoration of iris flowers at the base, seamlessly integrating into the overall design.
