Hello, and welcome to the board. 

Your piece is by Loetz and is a décor referred to as Ausführung 113.  It would have been produced around 1910.

This is, as far as my recollection goes, the only shape I have seen the decor on. It may have been produced on others though.

It is tough to tell the color of green from the pics for sure, but you may want to put a UV torch on it and see if it glows. It seems I have seen the decor on an Olympia Glatt ground, but this appears a little darker, at least in these images.

Is there any damage at all to the applied cords?

Nice find...

Hope this helps.

Craig

Great vase!  Good luck on your auction.  I plan to bid on it!  :)

Obscurities, I especially appreciate all of the research that you did on this piece and your willingness to share "your" discovery and identification of this decor!

came across this print being sold that appears to have an original inspiration perhaps for the Loetz vase.
Scroll down the listing  to the pics - top left page 28 of the journal

Great isn't it?
Should have added, source: Art Journal 1866 - no precise date given in the listing.
