Beautiful antique 19th century glass bud vase in the form of a sea shell. Made by Loetz in Bohemia / Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic).The vase is a pointed sea shell (conch) standing upside down, enclosed in an iridescent clear glass trio of swirling, fluted seaweed that tapers down to the base, in the same gold iridescent, clear glass that echoes the organic sea creature theme. The main shell is composed of incredibly colored and textured glass: depending on the light, the background is in shades of pinks and oranges with raised organic looking''scales'' in iridescent silvers and golds. All colors deepen, become more metallic looking and shade to blues, depending on the light and angle. The shape is quite luscious - a bowl on top seemingly torn open and curling backwards to show the inside / reverse of the glass.
Moulded with bends and twists - all generously rounded. Good overall, one seaweed leaf broken tip, see pictures.
