    This is a Loetz conundrum, how were the Ausfuhrung (Tango) decors named? by shape, application or surface texture? It appears they were designated by application type.
    Loetz has many contemporaries that used a prunt, pebble (or mole?) application including Jean Beck, Poschinger, etc...out of all the applications this is one of the only ones that has no number designation- as if it was never named. It seems to come in common shapes for tango and would suggest the Ausfuhrung is hidden in and old book somewhere. If anyone has the answers please let me know.

      Jericho, I can solve most of this equation. The first piece is PN III-697, and is Ausführung 162 (Mandarin m. Schwarz). The third and fourth photos would also be Ausf. 162, although I can't find the shapes in the Musterschnitte. I'm not totally convinced that the second piece is Loetz, although it might be. The description of Ausf. 162 changed between the time Ricke I was published and the time that Cantz was published. By following the shapes and production notes, we now know that Ausführung 162 is done in opal glass in various colors, with applied black rim and knobs. See the page for Ausführung 162 with further examples here:
