« on: August 01, 2016, 02:03:58 AM »
Recently bought this piece, and I absolutely love it. It was sold as Loetz Silberiris II Candia, can anyone confirm or deny the attribution please? I'm also curious as to whether the shape is a known Loetz shape?

It's strongly iridescent in a predominantly gold colour; although at some lighting angles it shows flecks of cyan. It has a polished pontil, and appears clear/yellow flecked in transmitted light.

I've had a look online, and the attribution seems plausible; but I'm not an expert, so I'd like some input from someone who knows a bit more about this somewhat confusing genre!
