    this is one of my last purchase on ebay, i've only found one sample on internet sold as fritz heckert decanter. the shape,n decoration , and enamel is the same, i just cant talk about more, without documentation.
    is is probably early 1900 production in "jahrhunderwerke" style or "historismus" way.

    the glass is softly iridescend in olive green/honney glass. with polished pontil.

    H 20cm

      this is alittle bit strange but the glass is little bit twisted, i dont think if it is normal or a bad made piece. the only one piece similar i have found on internet on sale was not "twisted" look

      Here is mine

      mine is pretty clearly same design stream as yours and same shape. Mine is shown in the catalog pages that are shown in the back of the fritz heckert book

      I have a couple of these. One of them has an interesting modification. A pouring-type' spout,' presumably fashioned from pewter, has been affixed to the original flanged spout. I cannot determined the exact reason why this was done without removing it, which I will not do unless the 'Karaffe' (English: decanter) is damaged beyond repair, my current thinking is that the flange (lip) was damaged, and someone had the bright idea of repairing it in this manner.

      This particular designed was also use on a lidded bowl, represented on the same Heckert 'im alt Deutschen Stil' catalog page (ca. 1880) as your decanter, one row down. I am familiar with an example of the lidded bowl, or 'Dose' (technically a canister), however, the lid is unfortunately missing.

      This design is described in German as 'Adler mit Blüten u. Fruchtzweige' (English: Eagle with flower blossoms and fruit tree branch).

      The Heckert catalog number,

      for the Karaffe is 414/6 Orig. 812
      for the Dose is 415/5 Orig. 61250

      'Orig.' (sometimes also 'Org.' and 'Original') within a Heckert catalog number, sometimes referred to a patent number (as the catalog number was given within the patent), denotes an original Heckert design.

      The decoration common to the Karaffe and Dose, were designed by Oskar Jummel, Fritz Heckert's brother-in-law through Heckert's 2nd wife (Jummel married a sister to Heckert's wife, Sophie Emilie). Jummel, who was a very prolific designer for Heckert, designed most of Heckert's heraldic glasses, as well as many other decorations.
