Vase, Koloman Moser, Johann Loetz Witwe, Phenomen Genre 85/5032 decoration, 1902
The design for this iconic work of glass art, executed in 1902, originates from none other than Koloman Moser. The famous painter, graphic artist and craftsman displayed an incredible imagination and inventiveness. The decoration of this monumental vase is undoubtedly one of the most important decorations of the Bohemian glassworks.
The rarely executed and remarkable form captivates with its three drop-shaped feet on a cylindrical, slightly wavy vase body with a straight outer lip. The surface decoration "PG 85/5032" shines with its strong iridescent threads and bands on a yellowish-white opal underlay. The impressive blue, green and turquoise shimmering decoration is distributed over three visually dominant wall zones: While the lowest zone is characterised by a dynamic and partly marbled tongue frieze, the middle section is coated by fine, lightly combed threads. Finally, the upper section captivates with particularly broad and irregularly distorted bands in shimmering colors ranging from silver-yellow to turquoise-blue.
Koloman Moser's vase is a self-contained work of art from the Jugendstil era that combines quality, passion and beauty. Its imposing size, rarity and excellent state of preservation make it an unmistakable museum piece.
