Any ideas on this nice piece of glass? I think it is made by Stuben, it is not signed, a heavy piece of glass with stand, not sure what the color is, it is in excellent condition, how old could it be? thank you for looking, and your ideas on this piece

    Love, love it! Hmmm...I don't know much at all about Steuben. The really keen glass people will be a much better judge than I. It might help if you post measurements of the vase and its base. Any hallmarks?

    If it's not Steuben, then it might be called clambroth glass - a kind of hazy/cloudy glass, but without the blue, red, green or gold fire that opalescent pieces have. It's hard to tell if something is clambroth glass if you can't see it held up to the light. If it is clambroth, TallCakes might be able to ID it. I learn from every post she makes!

    Hi, Deanteaks! I have been thinking about this beautiful vase. I had been struck by the fact that it has a matching stand. I've never seen a clambroth piece have a matching stand - but I'm by no means an expert!!!! rather, a rookie!!!!. I went looking for your vase as Stueben, and didn't find it. I did find out two interesting things, both of which you probably know. Steuben has closed. The wonderful Corning Glass Museum has a definition of alabaster glass that might help you determine if it is alabaster glass. "A type of translucent white glass, similar to opal glass, first produced in Bohemia in the 19th century. In the 1920s, Frederick Carder (1863- 1963) introduced alabaster glass at Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York. Carder’s alabaster glass has an iridescent finish made by spraying the object with stannous chloride and then reheating it." http://www.cmog.org/research/glass-dictionary/a#alabaster-glass
    So, the question would be, does your vase have an iridescent finish? Next, you said that this was rather heavy. Clambroth glass is not remarkable heavy. Assuming your beautiful vase was Steuben, I went looking for it, but as yet haven't been successful. It's a beautiful vase!! Now, if I won the Lotto, and everything on Collectors Weekly were up for sale, I'd buy Manikin's covered wagon doll, hellokitty6811's Dorsey Doniphan portrait, and your Methodist Meeting painting. Hands down. But then, I'd be admiring this vase all the way out the door. Regards, miKKo

    Hi, Deanteaks! Haven't seen you in a while. We have a member named LOUMANAL who might well be able to identify this item. I am going to copy a link of this item and paste it into one of her/his items. Take care!! : )

    Hi Deanteaks! Just to let you know that this Vase with Matching Stand was actually made by the BEAUMONT Company of Morgantown, W.V. between 1918 to 1936 in this opaque white glass they called Fer-Lux. After 1936 they were no longer making opaque white glass. If you can get your hands on it, Cynthia Ash wrote an article in the May, 1997 issue of GLASS COLLECTOR'S DIGEST called "FERLUX: Beaumont's Mystery Glass" which dealt with FER-LUX Glass. My source for this information is in the section on Beaumont Glass in the Reference Book called "GREAT AMERICAN GLASS of the Roaring 20's & Depression Era Book 2" by James Measell and Berry Wiggins, published in 2000. A similar Vase in Ruby is shown on a Fer-Lux Base on page 261. Hope this info. helps you, RER (LOUMANAL)
