A flea market purchase here in Sydney. I was really happy to get two on the same morning. It was probably my father who told me that the early bird catches the worm and I've been up early religiously each Saturday to see what I can find. I love the schwarzlot flowers on the bud-like form.
Loetz.com has recently defined them as Ausf 177 - 1918 - 1921 :" Thea, orange-opal, Imperial-red, Mandarin, lemon-yellow or opal ground with a solid black (actually amethyst) layer of glass on the lower half and lines pulled up to the top. Usually decorated with enamel-painted floral motives on each panel. Decor identified by Warren Galle.
