Description

This impressive vase wonderfully illustrates the significant collaboration between one of the leading glass manufacturers in Europe and one of the great talents from the field of art and design around 1900.

While Koloman Moser designed this exceptional shape with its side appliques back in 1899, the combination with the complex “Argus” decoration first occurred in 1902. The sheer size of this vase gives ample space to the irregularly warped green-yellow threads as well as the equally iridescent colored dots, also called “eyes”. The rich colors are especially effective on the classic light brown overlay with the delicate light-green silver oxid flakes.

The significance of this vase as a testimony of craftsmanship and in an art historical context is also reflected in the illustration of the object on the cover of an important piece of specialised literature (“Loetz – Bohemian Glass 1880-1940”).

Artist

Koloman Josef Moser (born March 30, 1868 in Vienna, Austria-Hungary; died October 18, 1918 ibid; also Kolo Moser) was an Austrian painter, graphic artist and artisan.
