This pattern is from a company known as Hosch in Czechoslovakia from the early part of the last century. Al has graciously shared this info with me but I think it was published in a Deb Truit book as well. Hosch definitely did decor for Loetz but if you look at the blanks you see they decorated others as well. The question for me is "did they sell glass outright with their own labels or were they just a service to other glass companies that needed more decorative tango?"

Notice: the bottom row of the production catalog by Hosch, the three looped-leg piece makes a convincing case that this shape should be included in the Loetz three handle category
