Here’s another beautiful vase going under the gavel tomorrow....a rare early 20th Century Loetz silver overlay vase circa 1901, the swollen ovoid body rising to a waisted collar neck and everted rim, with a PG 1/475 type ground with iridescent green to blue mottled spots over a pale ruby to citron ground, overlaid in silver with interlaced whiplash lines with sprays of flowers and central cabochon garnets, unmarked, height 17cm. Family owned from new its been one of the most admired lots in the sale....pre-sale estimate of £1000 to £1500 but what’s it going to make? Anyone fancy a guess? #auctioneer #auction #foundatfieldings #loetz #loetzglass #artnouveau #artnouveauglass #rare #rareglass #austrian #vienna @fieldingsauctioneers at Fieldings Auctioneers

Gorgeous suite of Venini Ambasciata drinking glasses designed in 1925 by Paolo Venini for the Italian Embassy! This set was purchased from Venini in St Marks Square in 1946 when the vendors mother was on her honeymoon, even better, Paolo Venini sold them to the lady personally!
