At first glance, this decor appears to be a variant of "Orpheus", an earlier decor which incorporates an Olympia ground with applied blue/green prunts and glass windings. But according to the invoice notes for this shape and others, first documented by Loetz Advisory Group member Tony Ellery, Ausführung 59 is clearly defined: Ausführung 59 - das ist olympia wellenoptisch mit moosgrün (olympia wave optic with moss green) - and so here you have it - Ausf. 59, 21 cm tall, threading and prunts are perfect! This is a great shape for this decor, and I'm happy to be able to add one to my collection - they aren't easy to find, especially with no damage!
