Loetz Paris 1900 production #437 in cobalt Norma decor, designed by Franz Hofstätter
About nine months ago I came across one of these. If you are a Loetz collector, any time you can buy a Hofstätter design you buy it if you can. The bonus in this case, is the form which is production shape 437, a design made for Paris 1900. This shape is typically found in ornate Phänomen Genre designs costing tens of thousands of dollars not the simple but elegant Norma decor on cobalt blue glass. Now I have two.
