For sale is a very nice piece of art glass made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. The item is more commonly known as a classic footed urn vase and it is done in Frederick Carder's Ivory style of art glass. This beautiful vase has some size as it stands 7 1/8" tall and the top opening is 5 1/8" outside lip measurement. The round foot has a diameter of 4 13/16".
The vase displays a Grecian Urn shape with a round foot. It has a very subtle creamy/beige color that is typical of the "Ivory" glass line. The body of the vase is fused to the foot. They appear as if only one piece was blown, yet it is actually a two part vase. At the bottom where the body meets the foot you can see how the foot actually has a raised lip to receive it.
The vase is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, or dings. The top lip has a tooling mark and a small black spec inclusion on the inside border. The vase also has an unfinished or rough pontil. There is a tooling mark on the top of the foot. This vase is not signed but there is no doubt as to who made this vase. It is a well documented form and is known as shape number "938" in the Steuben catalog of shapes.
This is a nice piece of art glass and will enhance any art glass collection. Those of you who collect Steuben vases and want a nice example in Ivory do not want to miss this opportunity. This shape is not commonly found in this color of glass. I will attach a link to view this shape in the Steuben Glass archives of shapes below.
This piece was made Circa 1915-1925 during the Frederick Carder years.
