For sale is an outstanding piece of Art Glass that is quite reminiscent of L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile Jack in the Pulpit vase. It is a lovely piece of art glass made by Phoenix Studios. The "Jack in the Pulpit" (JIP) art glass vase is one of the tallest contemporary ones that I have ever owned. It stands an impressive 18 1/2" tall and the face of the Pulpit has a diameter of 11 5/8" at its widest point. The bottom or foot of the vase has a diameter of 5 3/8". I have shown a picture of it next to a can of soup to show its size. The face diameter is the largest I have ever owned.
The gold Favrile, Aurene iridescence is just outstanding!! You can see beautiful hues of brilliant gold's and fuchsia all over the JIP. The base glass is gold and the edges surrounding the face of the pulpit have that wonderful onion skin stretching in it. The bulbous foot has vertical ribbing extending into the back side of the face. The ribbing gets less pronounced as it enters the face of the vase. This is a wonderful piece of art glass that will surely be cherished for many years to come!!It will be the focal point of one's collection because of its size!!
This vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The Jack in the Pulpit is signed on the bottom with a "Phoenix Studios Carl Radke" round foil label along with the etched signature mark by the artist "Carl Radke '15" . Carl Radke is very much a gifted artist that produces art glass vases similar in quality to the glass blowers from the studios of Tiffany, Steuben, and Quezal . His works are in many museums across the nation.
This vase is an investment in today's artist that will surely become tomorrow's heirlooms. Those of you who collect art glass know that the gold iridescence Jack in the Pulpit vases are a worthy investment. If this JIP was a real L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile we would be looking at $15,000-$20,000 because of its height. I'm quite sure the buyer will be well pleased with their purchase. This vase will enhance any art glass collection especially those in the gold Favrile, Aurene style of art glass.
