Description & Technical information

Décor: Cytisus, cut 3907

Almost without exception, vases with Cytisus decor are representatives of the most
creative period in the glassworks. This colourful design with its many effects
and interestingly rhythmic decor, which in addition shows similarities to
contemporary Viennese paintings (e.g. Klimt's Beethoven series of 1902), was
used almost exclusively on designs that had lively, wave-like contours.
