Steuben,

 

Sold


For sale is a lovely piece of art glass made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. The vase is known as a "Ribbed Optic Shade Vase" and it is done in Frederick Carder's most highly collected blue Aurene style of art glass. The vase stands 5 1/8" tall and is 5 1/8" in diameter at the outside measurement of the top opening. The bottom has a diameter of 2 1/8". This is the same size as their shade necks when used for lighting.

The vase is just unbelievably beautiful!! The shape is that of a trumpet shape at the top with a bulbous bottom. When the vase is turned over it resembles an art glass shade. The vase displays a very brilliant Peacock blue iridescent with 10 vertical ribs . The top exterior lip has a texture in the outer iridescence that reminds me of Loetz Papillon style of art glass. These vertical ribs rise up from the foot of the vase with the ribbing being more pronounced at the bottom and they gently disappear once they meet the top lip. The vase sits on a round foot that is only 3/16" tall. Looking inside the vase is as beautiful as looking outside.

The shade vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The bottom of the vase has minor scratches typical with age and is considered to show minimal use as there is very minor wear on the bottom. The vase is signed on the bottom with the "Steuben" etched signature mark. There is also a counter sunk polished pontil. This is the finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass.

Shade vases were considered late production from the Steuben Glass Company's Art Nouveau period. They were made circa 1928-1932. This is known as shape number 2533 in the Steuben Book "The Glass of Frederick Carder" by Paul Gardner. Those of you who collect Steuben shade vases and want a superior example do not let this one slip by!!
