I have not seen this decor of Loetz up in here, so here it is, Loetz version of thorns. it is 13 cm high, and has unusual pontil mark for Loetz, it looks like it is broken off and then somehow treated so it is not sharp, but it is not ground out and polished.

    Very nice, Mac. I have a clear one, but I like the green better. I have seen Loetz with incompletely finished pontils before, usually when it snapped off deeply and subsequent grinding might go through the bottom of the piece, or make it too thin. I also have a vase where they actually did grind it too thin, and the result was that the center of the pontil broke through (it was literally paper-thin in the center).

    Thank You all for the loves :D glad you enjoy it as much as I do!

    I think on mine the pontil mark is not polished because to do that they would have to fix the vase in some kind of rig, but with those balls they would risk braking them off, the glass on base seems fat enough to me.

    Lovely example of Ausf 81. The color is "golden green" and the shape is II-6473. The rim is fire polished so you would also expect a polished pontil but this was sometimes difficult especially with the Texas decor. As you noted the rough pontil is smooth but not polished so they may have fire polished it to smooth it down as best as they could.
