Antique German WMF Art Glass Karl Wiedmann Aurene Myra Iridescent Flare Bowl. Steuben-esque - WMF Studio - Perfected Iridized Glass.
WMF produced glass for more then 100 years, their period of triumph in glass only lasted from 1926 to 1936. They started making glass in 1883 when a glass house was built at Geisslingen near Stuttgart. The young glass designer Karl Wiedmann perfected the technique of iridized surfaces and the resulting "MYRA"-Kristall entered production in 1926. This piece is signed German artist, Karl Wiedmann, near the base. We love the gorgeous aurene sheen!

Based on the same techniques used by Tiffany and Loetz, the glassmaker Karl Wiedmann brought it to the production stage after experimentation at the Zwiesel glass school. The glass is a crystal formulated with silver nitrate instead of lead. The silver gives the glass a rich translucent amber color, but more importantly, it comes to the surface when reduced in the oven.
At the moment when the glass is covered in a thin layer of silver it is etched with iridescent metal salts, resulting in a bluish green golden lustre with a matt finish. As an additional decorative element, some vases were blown out to achieve a crackled surface.When lit from behind, all Myra glass will show a dark honey colour, which is a good method for their identification. Around 1935 further experiments were made with surface finishes. Instead of iridescent salts, silver nitrate or copper oxide were used for the finish. Silver nitrate gave a greenish iridescence, while copper oxide produced a bright red opaque finish with a golden shine. When this surface was partly brushed off, the silver etched underlying layer came to light and produced metallic blue clouding. Trials using a base of black glass produced an opal blue, known as "Lavaluna" glass. All possible variations and techniques were tried out, but on black glass the result did not look very different from enameled ceramic ware.
For this reason, the Lavaluna technique was shelved and never commercialised. In a 8 x 16 x 16 box.Facts about Estate Auctions Inc. Over 10,000 repeat buyers.
