Loetz, Tiffany or ?
« on: May 07, 2006, 08:05:54 PM »
Hi Everyone,
 
I bought this interesting little vase from a fellow in Amsterdam (pictures below).
 
I'm not sure if it's a Loetz piece or not (that's what it was advertised as).
 
It is a nice quality little vase (it's all of 2.5" tall) - gold iridescence with green pulled tadpoles, and the midsection body of the vase is threaded with white glass.  The base has a nicely polished pontil, and has an engraved number (which may mean absolutely nothing) of "o4063".  The glass is nice and thin, not clunky and thick like the new knock-offs, so whatever it is, I do believe it to be an older piece.
 
Anyone have any ideas  :?:

Thanks,
Brian

Wow, that was fast!  I've been advised by a Tiffany dealer & collector that this is a Tiffany piece!  :D

I'd still love to hear what others thoughts are.  

The more I look at it, the more the Tiffany attribution seems correct, it just doesn't have that Loetz likeness to it IMO.

Sorry doing this from memory

The preceding 'o' helps you date it - very roughly they got through 2 letters a year and I think A started in 1894 -so your vase is 7-8 years after that ie about 1906 and definitely LC Tiffany: a beaut!

 :D
