Phänomen Genre (PG) 166, along with PG 6893, are the earliest of the Phänomen Genres introduced by Loetz in 1898. PG 166 was found in virtually all available ground colors, decorated with combed silver threads and finished with an excised border around each "flame". The ground is light green with accent patches of "Maron verlaufend" (spreading chestnut). Size is about 10.25" tall. The colors and details of this piece are incredibly subtle and have to be seen in person to truly be appreciated.
For more examples of this decor in other colors and shapes, see the PG 166 page on Loetz.com:
