I just got this one, and I am thrilled to own a Loetz Phanomen genre that is not listed on Loetz.com. I do not own the expensive Loetz book, so I can not verify that this pattern is what Quittenbaum lists as genre 2/483. In fact I have seen 5 other examples; all sold by Quittenbaum, and all listed as PG 2/483. Well? Loetz-hounds? Are they correct?
As for the details, it is a massive 13-1/2" (34.3 cm) high, and the base glass is a wonderful pink. The "cattail" decorations are accompanied by small streaks of gold. The signature is very good. The signature means c1900.
So, after further input (thanks everyone) I must conclude that at this moment; this is listed as an unidentified Phanomen genre. That's the Loetz paradox; listed as unidentified. Regardless; it is a stunner!
