This bottle is a Loetz decor called 'Aventurin'. Aventurine is typically a green glass made with copper salts with flecks within it that appear to make it sparkle. Loetz's 'Aventurin' decor dates to 1903-04.
This bottle is quite large; with the stopper in, it measures 8" (20.3cm) tall. It is enameled with a lovely fuchsia flower pattern that is copper colored, rather than gold gilt. The bottom of the stopper has a rounded base that appears fire polished, which is unlike French stoppers that are typically ground flat. The bottom of the bottle has a round, finely ground pontil, in the Loetz manner.
It is a beautiful piece, and I have a very good friend to thank for pointing it out to me! :)
