Steuben Glass, Calcite Sherbet and Matching Underplate~
Price: $365.00
For Sale I have is a very nice Art Glass Sherbet and Under Plate made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, NY. The Pattern is called "Calcite" which is an Opal White with Gold Iridescence. The plate measures 5 7/8" in diameter and is 1" tall. The Sherbet stands 3 3/4" tall and the Sherbet opening is also 3 3/4" in diameter outside measurements. The Sherbet and Under Plate stands 4" tall when placed together. The Sherbet interior and under plate interior displays very strong gold Aurene, Favrile Iridescent. The Aurene is just Brilliant!! You can see strong hues of Fuchsia, and Gold with some hints of Blue. The Gold luster rivals any piece of art glass from LC Tiffany Favrile, Quezal, Durand and Loetz. The Sherbet and under plate's outside Calcite Finish displays a soft and subtle touch to this elegant desert setting. The underside of the Sherbet has the usual counter sunk and polished Pontil, the sign of quality Art Glass. The Plate shows a little bit of the Pontil Scar and they decided not to Polish and Counter Sink a Pontil. Instead the Plate has been rough Polished so it sits level. Neither of the pieces are signed as these traditionally carried a paper label and came off when washed. This is Design #2680 in the definitive Steuben reference, Paul Gardner's, The Glass of Frederick Carder, page. 197. Absolutely gorgeous color, and in perfect condition. These two pieces have no excuses to be made here. These were made Circa 1903-1920.
