Prior to the introduction of the famous #7857 Olive Dish in 1939, most Steuben Glass enthusiasts and collectors are unaware of the extremely rare #7801 Original Olive Dish which was produced for just a few years beginning in 1937. This functional and multipurpose piece is 7" wide and features a pair of the classic scroll handles. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1938 and only produced for a few years, the incredible, heavy and substantial 13 1/2"D. #7818 Centerpiece/Fruit Bowl is a perfect design for any table as evidenced by the Steuben Glass Fruit display in the photo. The classic, simple form features a beautifully rounded rim and plenty of interior surface to hold fruit or decorations. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
In the 1940's, John Dreves designed many classic functional pieces for Steuben Glass including a number of simple and elegant bowls. The #7909 10 1/2"D. Large Low Footed Bowl is one of the most popular forms ever produced by Steuben Glass. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1953, the long discontinued 13"D. #8039 Coronet Bowl represents the simplicity and elegance of this period in Steuben Glass design. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1960, the substantial and impressive 12 3/4"D.#8101 Peony Bowl in one of the finest Steuben Glass Bowl designs. A great choice for a centerpiece, this distinguished form features eight petals/leaves surrounding the base. Properly signed and in excellent condition--always a major issue on the resale market for functional pieces!!.
In 1986, Steuben Glass introduced a set of three Art Deco/Modern Vessels named the Momentum Collection. Only produced for a few years, the 7 1/4" #8540 Tall Momentum Vase/Bowl was the most popular form in the series. To express the force of circular motion, concentric paths trace the form of these innovative designs--capturing shining streams of light. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
In the late 1980's, the Steuben Glass introduced a three piece series of Momentum designs featuring an Art-Deco/Retro look with concentric circles surrounding the top of each piece. The 8 1/2"D. #8542 Momentum Vase/Bowl is an important part of this set. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
In the early 1940's, Steuben Glass designers featured some extraordinarily superb Americana/Patriotic copper wheel engraved Exhibition Pieces. The 7 1/2" wide W141 Transportation Bowl by Sidney Waugh from 1943 is one such example. These museum quality masterworks rarely appear in the marketplace. The Transportation Bowl has three panels depicting a steamboat, early glider/plane and steam engine. This historically important piece is properly signed and in excellent condition.
