Carillon is quite a wonderful Art Nouveau era Harrach decor. It has intense iridescence, splashes of color, and beautifully rendered enameled flowers. Presumably, the name comes from the faint bell-shaped silhouettes that adorn the iridescent background. This exact shape and decor are documented in "From Neuwelt to the Whole World: 300 Years of Harrach Glass", by PhDr. Jan Mergl. This example has remnants of the PN and DEK markings on the bottom that match the piece in the book exactly. The design drawing for this shape shows the decor name "Carillon" written directly onto the drawing.
