The acid-etched square "Made in Czecho-Slovakia" mark indicates later production. Most of the marked ones after 1918 have the oval mark, and the ones with the square mark I would assume to be be a bit later production. This is my second one of this decor, in a different form, and both have the square mark. This one measures 6 inches high, with a larger than usual polished pontil. The spots on later gold Papillon decor are often a bit more sparse than earlier ones, and much brighter gold in color.
