This has to be one of the earliest Phänomen Genre pieces. The paper patterns for Series I (1885-1897) are only published in part, but of the ones that are, this shape (PN I-1053/I) is the earliest one to reference a Phänomen Genre decor. This gorgeous rose bowl is in a fairly rare color, too - the ground is Mountain Blue, which is a pale aqua shade of blue (referred to in the paper patterns as "bergblau Phaenomen Gre 6893"). The silver-yellow iridescence is so thick, it almost masks the blue from the outside in photos, but in person, it's just amazing.
