    This treasure comes from 1940's, I think. It belonged to my Grandmother who was 'live in' nurse in West Orange NJ. She received this ' flower bowl'? as gratitude along with several other pieces from the family when her patient passed away . Any information appreciated.

      Steuben Glass Vase

      Steuben Carder Glass Bowl/Vase Folded Rim Aurene/Calcite Antique Iridescent

      It's a very nice piece of Steuben Glass, when I was young, this was the glass name we always look for in the Junque Shop/Antique Store that I worked at, from 1967-1974, a fun time for a 12-19yr old. It kept me in cash, but got me hooked on collecting! :^)

      Your bowl is a Steuben shape 2775 as seen on the underside. The shapes was made in several sizes. They are 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 inches in diameter. It was also produced in three styles of glass. They were Verre de Soi, Calcite, and Aurene in blue, and also in gold like yours. The Calcite bowls would have a white exterior and an Aurene interior in either blue or gold.

      The piece dates earlier than the 1940's. Steuben's colored glass production was quite limited as of 1918 because of WWI and issues with available supplies of raw materials. The company was sold to Corning in this time frame, and they reduced colored glass production at that time. The very last record of colored glass being sold by Steuben occurred in 1943.

      In the case of your shape we can specifically date the production period based on the paper label on the underside. It is a label, now considered rare, that was used by Steuben from 1910-1915. It was only used on product they produced for, and sold to Haviland & Co.

      Your example is a very special piece, particularly having the rare Haviland & Co. paper label remaining.... Do not ever remove it!!
