Thank you, Jay  :-*

Looking at Elaine's vase - here is mine
only 168 mms height, amber colour, marked BELGE

the band of roses makes it look very Brockwitz'ish ARIADNE range

the last (of 4) photo shows two clear white original ARIADNE and BELGE vase

This goblet hasn't got a name, just the number 54715 and is illustrated in the 1913 catalogue. How long it has been and was in the catalogue is unknown to me but it can't have been for much longer after that. It is normal that it is marked in English as up to 70% of the production was exported at the time.

Thanks Anne,a poignant date indeed!,Is that why you say production would not have been very long.

Difficult to say exactly, because of a lot of documentation that has been lost. Some of the glasses are dated for the design +/- 1900 and some 1922 but I don't know how accurate that is and when a design finally came into production. The whole series is illustrated in the 1913 catalogue but in the late 20ies they must have definitely stopped these productions as everything became more 'clean lined' so to speak. They're indestructible these glasses, great fun in different colours in summer with a (spiced up 😋) lemonade on the terrace.
