This extraordinary vase was designed by one the famous Austrian artists in Vienna around 1900, Koloman Moser. It is one of his most iconic patterns and the size is particularly striking. The surface decoration 'PG 85/5032' is among the most ornate variants that were produced by the Bohemian glassworks Johann Loetz Witwe at that time. Its monumental size and compelling quality makes it an incredibly rare, museum-quality piece.
