For Sale I have a Lovely piece of Art Glass made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. The Vase is known as a "Shade Vase" and it is done in Frederick Carder's most desirable Blue Aurene Glass.
The Vase is just gorgeous!! The Blue Aurene Iridescence is stunning. You can see a deep Platinum Metallic Blue Iridescence. The Bottom and inside iridescence displays a Deep Peacock Blue with Strong hints of Fuchsia and Purples. The Vase sits on a round Foot with Vertical Ribbing rising up from the foot and extending to the edges of the flaring top lip.
The Shade Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. I could find only a couple of very small scratches in the iridescence as this is rather common since these were used vessels. The bottom of the Vase is polished smooth and you can see scratches on the bottom. This simply is showing its age and is considered normal use. The Vase is signed on the bottom with the Etched "Steuben" cipher mark. There is also a counter sunk polished Pontil. This is the mark of quality Art Glass. This shade vase's counter sunk Pontil was done a little different than the ones I have had in the past. Along the edges of the counter sunk Polished Pontil is a faceted wheel cut pattern.
Shade Vases were considered late production from the Steuben Glass Company's Art Nouveau Period. They were made Circa 1928-1932. This is considered shape number 913 in Steuben's Early Catalog Pages. Those of you who collect Steuben Blue Aurene and want an excellent example do not let this one slip by.
