ABOUT LOETZ MARMORIERTES GLASS: The concept of making glass look like stone was not new at the end of the nineteenth century. Indeed, even the Ancient Romans had created glass that resembled sardonyx, among others. Neither were the techniques involved, which consisted of trailing threads onto a colored glass rod to give the appearance of veining. What was new was that Loetz made better marbled glass than its contemporaries, and this Marmoriertes Glas was a considerable commercial success which the company was able to build on right up until its art nouveau business took off.The first semi-precious stone to be imitated by Loetz was probably Onyx, and this probably in 1887 or early 1888. Early on Loetz used an underlay of clear glass, but later this was changed to opal glass to better show off the colors and the veining. Carneol the most dramatic and popular of them all followed in 1888-89, then the rarer Lapis Lazuli and Malachite in 1893. Loetz first exhibited its Onyx Glass at the 1888 Arts and Crafts Exhibition in Munich, where its showpieces were the two gigantic Kaiser Franz Josef vases, 4 feet high and made of Onyx Glass mounted on gold-plated bronze. But the crowning success of this period of Loetzs climb to world renown was the Grand Prix it received at the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris, sharing the top award with Gallé, Murano and Salviati.
The Austro-Hungarian press proudly reported that here we saw magnificent masterpieces in a technical perfection and with an artistic taste that is the glory of the Bohemian glass industry and the pride of the whole Austrian arts and crafts movement. Museums from Paris and abroad acquired particularly Carneol and Victoria items during the exhibition. This quote is for the Continental U.
