Thanks to my friend Andy, I now have an example of Titania in my collection. I had a hard time finding the shape for it at first, because as it turns out, the shape is an older one. Titania was introduced in 1905, but PN II-47 dates to ca. 1900. However, the production notes mention "later orders", and if you look at the handwriting on the line drawing (last photo), you can see that Titania Gre 2534 is penned in last, and in a slightly darker script.
Genre 2534 comes in a few different ground colors - this is one of the monochrome varieties in green. The green ground is covered with another layer of combed steel-gray silver-glass threads, then encased in a colorless layer, completing the paperweight technique. The enameled undersea motif adds interest. The DEK number for this enameled pattern is unknown at this time.
