Unusual WMF Ikora glass vase by Karl Wiedmann. Footed vase with short knop stem and trumpet-form bowl with flared rim. Deep-red foot with red inclusions extending flame-like through to the bowl. Attractive crazed decoration to bowl with small opalescent inclusions (difficult to capture in images). Deep-red band to flared rim. Ground base. The vase is 21.5 cm in height and 19 cm in diameter across its rim. WMF started making glass in 1883 when a glass house was built at Geisslingen near Stuttgart to produce their own glass inserts. The original 1883 glass house was destroyed during the First World War and a new, more modern facility opened in 1922. The young glass designer Karl Wiedmann perfected the technique of iridized surfaces and the resulting 'MYRA'- Kristall entered production in 1926. The same year also saw the beginning of the first 'IKORA' glass - reputedly discovered by accident whilst correcting a Myra glass piece. Both Myra and Ikora glass continued to be produced until around 1936, when production of art-glass ceased. Because of the technique used, combining colours and treatments, each Ikora piece is unique.
