    Among the paper patterns for glasses that Loetz produced on behalf of other companies, there is only one pattern under Com. 445 for the company E. Eckerts Nachf. I do not know if this glass has survived anywhere. However, it is documented twice in period literature: in the magazine "Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration" from 1900 and in the "Kunstgewerbeblatt" from 1901. The illustrations show a figure, probably made of bronze, of a seated African designed by Ludwig Habich as a lid. According to the cut, the vessel is about 22.5 cm (approx. 9 in) high. The entry on the cut dates the design to 16.2.1900. It remains unclear why it is described as a lighter in "Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration".
    Interesting is the note on the paper pattern regarding Gre 7624 as "drawn reversed". The arcs of the combed bands here are directed downward to the left, whereas in the Phänomen Genre 7624 they are always oriented upward to the right.

      I believe that Deutsche Kunst und Dekoration called this a lighter because, based on the position of the figure and the fact that he is blowing into his cupped hands, this person is trying to light a fire by blowing into a smoldering substance, like grass, that he is trying to ignite to build his campfire.

      A collector friend of mine suspects that it is actually a cigar lighter. A wick led through the lid into the figure's hands. The fire burned for as long as it was needed. Lighters like this were used in men's rooms and hotels, for example. You never stop learning...
