Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a gorgeous Loetz "Candia Silberiris" Art Glass petite/ miniature cabinet vase from the Art Nouveau Period, c. Measures 3 1/2" high with a top diameter of 2 3/8" (at widest) and the base is 1 3/8 in diameter. This stunning vase has a beautiful blue-green silvered iridescent finish over the pale topaz glass body and is overlaid with a Sterling Silver Art Nouveau floral design.
The design features three individual flowers set within a diamond shaped medallion connected within a band around the center of the vase. The top is deeply ruffled with a dimple in the glass at the bottom of each ruffle.
The upper rim is also banded with Sterling Silver. Some Loetz vases with applied silver decoration were executed in Europe but the majority originated from America with the silver work applied by American Silver Companies to vases acquired directly from the Loetz factory.
Only the highest grade silver is malleable enough to be worked on glass making these silver overlaid vases very desirable with any Loetz petite vase being especially rare. The vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or other noted flaws. There are a couple of tiny no-harm dimples in the glass from production which is very common on these pieces. This lovely vase is unsigned, however, it is guaranteed to be authentic and as represented.
