Did Crown Lynn copy German vases?

Check out this auction
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=193168261

It looks just like the 314 in the Shape Guide -
but they say it has made in Germany on the base ????
Did they have a numbering system in Germany too???

a lot of german pottery uses form numbers... eg 314/24

I'm not sure the auction is worded right...he might mean clearly marked "314" ...and in his opinion its german pottery... because you're right ev it does look like a Crown Lynn piece
