The vase measures 17.5 x 7.4 cm. The marking on the bottom 343 looks quite believable, so it should be DEK 343. On the loetz.com website, the same decor is maintained as DEK 356, as evidenced by photos of the vase (including marking 356) from the Glasmuseum Passau. The only difference could be the color of the cabochons. While the PGM vase has only turquoise cabochons, this vase has 2 turquoise cabochons and 2 ruby cabochons. So this difference probably distinguishes DEK 343 from DEK 356.
So I specify: The difference between DEK 343 and DEK 356 is mainly that DEK 343 has some circles that have even smaller circles inside.
