This deco-era shape by Loetz (PN III-355) was versatile, and was offered in several different sizes and decors. Production documents mention 5", 7", 8", and 10" sizes (and there may be others). This is the 10" variety. This shape and 10" size in Ausf. 157 was used by Michael Powolny at the Werkbund Exhibition of 1914 in Cologne, Germany. The black floral/vine/leaf decoration is very similar to that on a yellow with sky blue vase I posted a couple of years ago, but the flowers on this one are just slightly different. It is marked with the CZECHO-SLOVAKIA acid-stamped oval mark underneath.
