Steuben,

 

Sold


For sale is an unusual piece of art glass made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. The item is called a "Nappie" and it is done in Frederick Carder's most desirable Gold Aurene style of art glass. The Nappie has some size to it as it is stands 2 1/8" tall to the top of the loop. This dish itself is approximately 6" in diameter and is 1 1/4".

The Nappie displays a sea shell shape with spiral ribbing. The gold Aurene iridescence is stunning. You can see deep beautiful fuchsia hues with some blue purple tones and combined with the brilliant gold iridescence makes this a desirable piece. This is the gold Aurene that Steuben was famous for. The back side where the looped handle is on the Nappie has its sides gracefully rise up and fold over towards the inside of the dish. This piece of art glass almost looks like a wide shovel. The brilliant iridescence is on the inside of the piece and the underside shows a muted more clear iridescence.

This Nappie is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is a minor scratch on the inside center and this is pictured and considered insignificant. The handle has some iridescent wear and is typical of these type forms. The area where the thumb rest shows the most. The Nappie has a counter sunk polished pontil, the sign of a quality piece of art glass. The piece is signed with an early Steuben serrated circular paper label that sits in the middle of the pontil. It reads "Steuben Glass Works, Corning N.Y." There is some writing in pencil on it as well. It is very hard to read but I believe it reads " # 2/25____a. There is also an old retail price label to the side and it appears to read 3.55. Could this be the retail price on this when it was made? I left this label on as it was found this way and appears it to be an early original label.

This is an early form made at Steuben Glass and the round serrated label tells us this . The Nappie is similar to shape number 510 style A in the Steuben Club archives of shapes. I will attach a link to view. Those of you who collect Steuben Gold Aurene and want a nice rare example with strong color do not let this one get away.

Here is a few links to this shape in the Steuben Club Achieves of shapes. http://www.cardersteubenclub.org/shapes/item-view.cfm?category=Shape%20Index&recordID=25978&back=1 Black and White Drawing
