    PN II-837 is not officially designated as a Franz Hofstötter design, but it was clearly made using either the same or a very similar mold as PN II-383, which was a Hofstötter form made for the 1900 Paris Exposition. The only difference is that the shape is inverted; if you turn on paper pattern upside down and compare it to the other, the profiles and the sizes are the same. At any rate, this is a great cobalt Papillon in a shape that is strange, but also familiar. Both PNs, II-383, and II-837, were made using (among others) the Papillon decor.
