This wonderful decor was first used in 1901, on a lamp shade designed by Kolo Moser for Bakalowits (PN 85/3839). It is that shape that the decor is named after. The Kolo Moser shades are usually found with a ground of candia with either dark blue or dark green spreading. Other ground colors are thea (pale yellow) and opal, which is the color used on this jug. PN II-2299/Krügel (Jug) dates to about 1905, and is found in a huge variety of decors - over two dozen, in fact. This is the first PG 85/3839 I've ever seen in opal. I also love the Silberiris handle. According to the pattern text, there was a matching beaker or tumbler that was made (PN II-2299/Becher). If anyone has one of those lying about, hit me up!
