Tall WMF Art Deco Ikora glass vase by Karl Wiedmann. Skittle form body with flared rim. Fissured décor through the vase. Deep-red vertical bands to body with coral-red to neck and rim. Ground base. The vase is 41.5 cm in height and 17.5 cm maximum diameter. 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.
