For sale is a very large art glass vase made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. This is from my personal collection. This vase is done in Frederick Carder's most highly collected Jade Green style of art glass. I call this a large magnum vase because of its size. The correct classification would be considered a "Tapered Shoulder Vase". The vase is rather large as it stands 8 3/8" tall and has a diameter of 8" at the shoulder. The top inside opening has a diameter of 3 1/4" and an outside one of 4 3/8". The bottom or foot of the vase is 3 3/4" in diameter. The Circumference of the vase at the shoulder is an amazing 24 1/2".
This vase displays a classic Greek form that has pleased the collector for years. The high shoulder with a sharp tapered drop with a flaring top lip was made in many sizes by Steuben. This was one of their best selling forms. It displays one of the nicest creamy Jade green's I have ever owned. Its impressive in size yet subtle in color. It is very translucent at the top two thirds with the lower third being a little bit darker in hue.
The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips or dings to the piece. The vase has a counter sunk polished pontil, the finishing sign of a piece of quality art glass. The piece is not signed but there is no doubt as to who made this. It is a well documented form and style of glass known as "Jade". This is a very nice example of Steuben's Green Jade in both form and color. This is known as shape number 2683 in the Steuben catalog. There were 6 sizes made and this is the middle size. I will attach a link for you to view this shape from their archives. This vase is guaranteed to be made by Steuben Glass. This Vase was made circa 1918-1925.
