This one had been a bit of a mystery. I have seen few others in this decor. Last year I found one that matched a form in the Loetz band II book, and it listed "Zickzackoptisch" in the decors, obviously referring to the zigzag silver stripes on the sides. This one has the acid-etched oval "Czecho-Slovakia" mark, which puts the production date post-1918. A large piece, it measures 6 3/8" high by 7 1/4" wide. The pontil is quite small, at just under the size of a quarter. Reddish-orange glass on the interior, with the silvery-gray design over that, and a layer of clear glass over all. The outside has a bit of texture to it. I was not able to find this particular shape in the Loetz band 2 musterschnitte.
This decor has recently been added to the loetz.com decors page.
