Christie’s South Kensington sold a Loetz glass collection at its Interiors sale, June 8, 2016

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


Christie’s South Kensington held its Interiors sale on June 8, 2016. Included in the sale was a nice grouping of Loetz vases, some of which did well.

Top lot of the group was #320, a signed, 6½” vase, decorated with iridescent hearts and swirled decoration, in beautiful shades of pink and red. It doubled it’s high estimate of £2,500, realizing £5,625 ($8,173), including buyer’s premium.

I thought highly of lot #318. It was signed, but small at 4½” tall. It featured gold iridescent drip decoration over a deep salmon, wave-decorated background. It sold for 50% above its high estimate of £1,800, realizing £2,500 ($3,633), including buyer’s premium.
