957 -- Cephalonia miniature glass bowl or vase with handles
My Translation of the text is fuzzy and probably inaccurate but it appears to be suggesting that both Sütterlin and Dr Metzen were a bit off the deep end with their designs and this is a perfect example of how mad they were. I'm Personally in love with their madness and quite glad they had the freedom to act as the artists they were. I don't have a metzen yet but my library of Sütterlin is increasing. This is the best I have from him yet. my photos aren't the best. I need to wash these lightly but won't be doing that for a while to come. I think the iridescence will be quite a bit brighter. One was marked but it's very hard to see.
