This superb form was designed by Franz Hofstötter for the Paris Exhibition of 1900, where it was shown in metalgelb PG 358 "black-bottom". (see last photo scan of Ploil, Lötz auf der Weltausstellung Paris 1900, p.30). This is a variant of the newly documented "Orchis" decor, where the blue spots cover the entire piece. (ganz blau getupft = all blue spotted), 17.3 cm (just shy of 7 inches) tall. Happy New Year, everyone!
