Introduced in 1959, the 11 1/4" #0055 Moby Dick remains one of the all time best Steuben Glass Exhibition Pieces. The detailed design is a major cutting and engraving achievement as the decoration is not merely an illustration but an integral component of the form---a magical interpretation of the mortal struggle between Captain Ahab and the great white whale from Herman Melville's epic novel. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Designed by Bernard X. Wolff and introduced in 1984, the 8 3/4" wide and 6 1/2" high #0358 Monument Valley is a solid crystal form cut and deeply sand sculpted to depict a moon-drenched scene--buttes, spires, dunes and sand flats such as nature carves from sandstone at various breathtaking locations in Arizona and Utah---Monument Valley being one of the most spectacular!! The pale cut moon hovers above the fantasy landscape; in some light, it appears as a blazing sun. This extremely heavy masterwork---one of only a few Steuben Glass exhibition pieces featuring the American Southwest---is properly signed, in excellent condition and handsomely presented in the original red leather case.
Designed by Bernard X. Wolff in 1985, the extraordinary 10 1/4" #0361 Balloon Rally is one of the all-time best Steuben Glass masterworks. Peering into the glass, one can almost imagine soaring over a quaint New England village in one of the countless hot air balloons floating within this magnificent sculpture. The picturesque scenes, different from each viewing angle, are achieved by means of precise cuts and meticulous copper wheel engraving. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1997, the 7 1/4" wide #1173 Our Love is one of the finest Steuben Glass romantic sculptures. Swans engage in a dance in which they mirror one another's movements. Capturing an evocative moment in the dance, two young swans form a heart shape against a rising moon. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
