Description & Technical information

Designed by: Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule, for Argentor Vienna
Executed by: Argentor Werke Rust und Hetzel Metallwarenfabriken Wien
Glass executed by: Raffinerie und Glasfabrik Fritz Heckert

Colourless glass, closely trailed with coloured glass threads and splashes, Secessionist brass mount with prominent base, three studs on the sides tapering to a protruding handle.

With its iridescent, rainbow-coloured surface the glass shows a strong affinity to the Phänomen décors developed by Lötz. The Secessionist brass mount imparts a particularly harmonious general impression to this object which is certainly the equal of Lötz's best pieces.
