    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. :)

      Hi Warren
      Wondering if the Ausf 146's all perhaps have a Makart ground and green Titania finish ... with spreading red or chestnut (or darker) upper segment ?
      The pics on appear to show at least 2 colors (PGM example) but many of the others could be of the same pieces in different lighting ...
      .. then there is also the red / salmon / blue ....

      Hi Steve -

      The other colors are mentioned in the Series II book - PN II-8652, for example, lists makart, rot, and schwarz as ground colors for Ausf 146. There is also an enticing description for as yet unknown Ausf. 149 - "laubgrün m. blaugrün"
    6. SteveS SteveS, 5 years ago
      Can see the Makart ground in your 3rd picture ... in between the threads of ... ?Schwarz (appearing dark brown or black) ...
      ... was thinking the rot is the other color we see about ... also on a Makart (opalescent) ground ....
      Leads to questioning whether the laubgrun is the color seen in your piece ....
    7. bohemianglassandmore bohemianglassandmore, 5 years ago
      Steve, if it is green at all (I know I said May green).... it very well could just be melusin with a greenish tint. All through the Cantz book when there is a pale green titania layer, it is just referred to as melusin. Laubgrün (leafy green) is much more vivid and darker, I think.
