Bohemian, CZECH, Loetz Post 1918 vase.
- Source: eBay
This authentic Loetz vase is over 7 1/2" high and has the mark of CZECHO on the top and SLOVAKIA on the bottom enclosed in a oval located on the base with its double polished pontil. This mark is located at on page 2 of identifying marks. The vase itself is rather plain, it lets the finish speak for itself. It has bits of an onyx color throughout the vase. The AURENE finish pops with purples and reds and green when the sun hits it. Although the shape is a rather common Loetz it would make a great addition to a novice Loetz collector, who can be assured of its authenticity.
