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.
Originally designed in 1939 as a Water Pitcher, the 9 1/4" #7837 Pitcher/Vase is truly a multi-purpose functional piece as it accepts a nice bouquet of flowers, too. A beautiful, bulbous form from this important time in Steuben Glass history. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
In the 1940's--1950's when smoking was in vogue, Steuben Glass produced a selection of Smoking Accessories including the 3" #7878 Rope Twist Urn. As times have changed, the original intended use as a Cigarette Holder has been updated to many other practical uses such as Toothpick Holder, Paper Clip Holder, etc.!!! Properly signed and in excellent condition. Note that only one available--not two.
Introduced in the 1940's, the 8 1/2"D. #7934 Massive Ashtray is the most impressive Ashtray design ever produced by Steuben Glass. This heavy piece is properly signed and in excellent condition---always a major issue when buying this type of functional Steuben Glass item on the resale market!!!
In the 1940's--1950's, Steuben Glass produced a variety of Ashtrays which also serve as all purpose candy/nut dishes. One of the more substantial designs was the 5 1/4" wide #8028 Ashtray with Sloping Bowl. Properly signed and in excellent condition--a major issue on the resale market for this type of functional piece.
Introduced in 1956 and not often seen in the marketplace, the 8 1/2" #8159 Covered Urn features an inscription from the Old Testament which reads: He Shall give the angels charge over thee and keep thee in all thy ways. This special and extremely rare design is properly signed and in excellent condition
