This is a seldom seen decor from Loetz known as Ausführung 131. It stands 7.5" tall and is in production number 11-5898, circa 1908. The ground has an opal violet colored Ciselé or small Papillon type oil spotting. Additional interest comes from the applied gold handles and rim. Ground and polished pontil.
