This unusual shape in Creta Cisele with applied teardrop decoration is not represented in the Musterschnitte (Loetz Bohmische Glas, Band II), but my friend David Littlefield was able to find it in the larger volume called Loetz Series II, Part 1, by Jitka Lnenickova, puslished by the Muzeum Susice. The only difference between this one and the line drawing is the size (this one is larger) and that the "tropfen", or "drops" are inside the rim folds rather than between them. The line drawing also references that these were made for the customer Pauly & Cie circa 1905. This would be shortly after that firm's founding in 1903, but before the company's 1919 merger with Compagnia di Venezia e Murano.
This piece is about 4" tall and about 6" in diameter.
