AUSF 114 is a recently discovered decor, thanks to a group effort. It appears both in Ricke and Cantz as a line drawing (first photo). It was made with only leaves and with leaves and pearls (photo 2). The third photo shows the only example known so far. A group member in Britain had found a pair. One of them had a slight defect in one pearl. He kept the undamaged and I bought the other. When I ran it through my glass study group, the Glasshounds, another member took the trouble to find and distribute the known line drawings in Ricke's design catalog. Finally, I found another pair in the fabled Ketterer 1979 catalog, classified as maybe Kralik! (fourth photo). No small wonder: applied leaves are a Kralik trademark

    Well done to all ... this obsession becomes more fascinating by the day does it not ? ... :-)

    And I must add: Kai Hasselbach, from Germany, first identified the decor and then Deb found the design in the line catalog. There's group work for you!
