Introduced in 1977 and only produced for a few years, the extraordinary, 7 1/4" wide #1059 Flying Owl is one of the all-time best Major Ornamental Designs. The piece is blown from a three fold gather of crystal in which two layers of trapped air bubbles form a featherlike pattern. The head is cut, the eyes engraved and, along the back, translucent cuts repeat the pattern. The open-ended body, abstract in concept, suggests a smooth, silent flight of the nocturnal bird as it alights on a perch or its prey. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1980, the #1068 Close to the Wind features two crystal sails suggesting a sloop close-hauled to the wind. The large 8" form represents the mainsail, the smaller the jib. This impressive sculpture vividly captures the essence of sailing--the sea, the wind and the speed. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
In the late 1980's, Steuben Glass introduced the #1126 9 1/2" Lion majestically resting on an attractive wood base. This regal animal has appeared as a figure of bravery and strength throughout the history of art. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1995 and only available for a few years, the #1164 Rose Bouquet features a pair of copper wheel engraved roses beautifully positioned on the glass sculpture. Properly signed and in excellent condition, this elegant and romantic 8 1/2" design is the perfect gift for many special occasions.
Introduced in 1994 and one of the all time most popular corporate gifts/awards, the 12" #8760 Partnership symbolizes a bridge that spans both time and distance--a supportive partnership is a bond to be celebrated. Beautifully displayed on a black granite base. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
