Steuben,

 

Sold


For Sale is a wonderful piece of Art Glass made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. The Item is a hand blown "Console or Low Bowl" and it is done in the Verre de Soie style of art glass. This was Frederick Carder's favorite glass. Verre de Soie literally means "Glass of Silk". The Bowl is a good size as it stands 1 7/8" tall and is 9 3/4" in diameter.

The bowl depicts a milky translucent white glass throughout. The entire bowl has a wonderful iridescent sheen to it. You can see beautiful hues of Fuchsia, Purples and Blues. This is such a gracefully shaped bowl. This unique shape is definitely a Steuben Trademark. When you rub this piece of glass across your face it has a very silky feel to it, thus the name "Verre de Soie" Glass of Silk.

The Bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are minor scratches on the bottom side and two on its side and these are pictured. This is consistent with this shape and its age. There are also few tiny air bubble common with early glass. The low bowl is unsigned as this style "Verre de Soie" usually carried a paper label. The piece displays a counter sunk polished pontil. This is the sign of quality hand blown art glass. I believe this bowl to be a shape variant of Steuben's Number 2586. This bowl is the exact same shape but it does not have applied feet.

Steuben Aurene Glass is some the Highest Quality Glass you can own. At the turn of the Century LCT Tiffany Studio's Favrile line was their main competitor and their fared equally as well creating some of the nicest Art Glass Vases the World has ever seen. This piece was made Circa 1905-1920. I have attach a link below to show this in the Steuben achieves of shapes.
