One of my recent purchases. I have not owned anything prior to this in the Leonidas decor, and I love finding unusual shapes to add to my collection, so this one was a no-brainer, as they say. It is about 1.5 inches high, 8.5 inches long, and 4.5 wide. It has a sort of rim around the base of it, so it could have been used as an architectural detail on a building, or, as someone suggested, put in a holder as part of a wall sconce. Whichever it is, it is shown in Waltraud Neuwirth's Loetz Austria 1905-1918, and described as "unfinished product".
