Large Rare Secessionist Art Glass Vase Attrib. Josef Hoffmann Wiener Werkstatte For SaleLARGE RARE Secessionist Art Glass Vase Attrib. Josef Hoffmann Wiener Werkstatte Product Description
LARGE RARE Viennese Secessionist Art Glass Vase Josef Hoffmann Attribution
Date: Circa 1910-1920
Origin: Bohemia / Czechoslovakia manufacture
Description: This large (almost 10 in.) amethyst colored vase is made of high quality heavy leaded glass and features faceted sides in the Viennese Secessionist style of Joseph Hoffmann. It features a cut and polished rim and bottom with molded faceted sides and buttresses. This vase is a GUARANTEED ORIGINAL early 20th century art glass vase and is NOT A REPRODUCTION. Dr. Rainald Franz, glass expert at the MAK – Österreichisches Museum fürangewandte Kunst/Gegenwartskunst in Vienna (which houses the Hoffmann archive), has graciously examined photos of this vase. He notes that the "glass looks very good, if you visit the MAK homepage, you will find similar examples." Although this specific design does not appear in the online MAK archive, an attribution to Hoffmann seems very likely but not certain. This is a large and architecturally striking piece of glass -- possibly a rare form and a sleeper. It is typical of glass produced by Moser, Meyr's Neffe, and Johann Oertel & Co withWiener Werkstätte and Hoffmann designs.
I have included a photo of some similar examples in the online archive of the MAK.
Markings: No noticeable markings.
Condition: Very good condition with minor areas of roughness on one edge of a faceted side and just inside the rim (see photos).
Height: 9.8 in.
Width at rim: 5.4 in.
Width at base: 3.9 in.
