For the dating see similar decorated bowl in Bergen Westfälische Kunst Industrie Museum (Journal of Glass Studies vol.3 1963) page 106, fig. F; E. 1900). A vase in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, dated 1900 (inv. no. 1622-1900) is similar in conception. For a bowl with a similar decoration see, for example, Blount 1968, Fig. 22 300.
The décor was also produced in a version for etched overlay; cf. German Art and Decoration, vol. XV, 1904, 05, p. 136.
