This late Titania decor was catalogued as an "Ausführung" (made in the manner of) number 146. The shape is a late Series II form dating to just before the first World War. This paperweight style vase has a striking combination of a makart (reddish aurora) ground with an internal decoration of may green craquele and steel-gray Titania combed threads. It is 22.5 cm, or just under 9 inches tall. PNs II-8650 and II-8651 are the same shape - they differ only in size (II-8651 is 10 cm taller).
Like most Titania pieces, the subtlety of the internal decoration is almost impossible to photograph. :)
