Rare Loetz Goblet Hans Bolek Opal with Black, circa 1915

About

Between 1912 and 1917, the architect Hans Bolek supplied numerous form and decor designs for the glass manufactory Johann Loetz Witwe. In the run-up to the Werkbund exhibition in Cologne in 1914, he also intensively studied the historical vessel shape of the goblet, as evidenced by some of the designs realized for this exhibition. Here Bolek once again varies the theme of the decor "Opal außen Schwarz" and places the distinctive heart-shaped motif on the shaft of the goblet. He retains the division into a vegetal-ornamental and a geometrically structured part and additionally staircases the vase several times. With the stepping he anticipates what was to become a modern stylistic element in Art Deco a few years later. Bib.: compare decoration in E. Ploil, H. Ricke e.a.
