Charles Lotton Vase
« on: July 24, 2014, 10:14:47 PM »
Sue (chopin-liszt ) asked me to post some pics of a Charles Lotton vase I recently purchased.  What attracted me to it, is it's iridescence which matches nicely the Loetz vases in my collection.  It measures 7" x 7".

I've reposted the pictures as I'm hoping the smaller size will show off the finish a little better.  The larger size doesn't show the detail that well.

Thanks Christine, the texture is one of the things that drew me to it.

any date on it? It looks like one of his earlier pieces. Haven't seen Charles for a couple of years, hope he's still doing OK, he's got to be about 75 by now and last time I saw him he was still making a lot of glass.

Scrumptious. Absolutely scrumptious... or is it truly scrumptious?  I'll go with both.

Thank-you so much for showing us, rainbows and textures and vivid, bright colours all working together perfectly,
I much prefer it to the non attributed piece, lovely though it was.

The orange will be lovely with any green Loetz you have, with the iridesence pulling them together. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Thanks for the kind comments and excellent description Sue.  I wish you could see it in person as the colors are gorgeous!  Unfortunately, the pics don't do it justice.  And yes, it compliments my Loetz pieces beautifully.   

Regards
Rick

I don't know what qualifies for an early piece, but it's dated 1990.

That is lovely. 1990 is not vintage to me. I own his vases from the early 1970 s. 1972 is the earliest I have seen. About three years ago we stopped at the factory. We watched a perfume bottle made and bought a paperweight.  Charles was sitting in his office and told a man that "the gas company loves me!" Go figure! My best memory is walking across downtown Grand Haven, Michigan to an ice cream stand and he bought me ice cream.

What a lovely treat it must have been to actually go to his factory and- to top it off- have him buy you ice cream!  Have you posted any of your early pieces?  I'd love to see some.
