In the late 1960's--early 1970's, Steuben Glass introduced an extraordinary series of Great Animals which were inexplicably produced for only a few years---thereby making them extremely rare. The massive 11" long #5011 Great Polar Bear captures the weight and majesty of this beautiful animal. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Some Steuben Glass collectors are familiar with the extremely rare Great Animal from the late 1960's but most do not realize there was also the extraordinary and massive 9"D. #5010 Great Pumpkin!! Have only seen two of them in my 30+ years of searching for the better Steuben Glass pieces. The Great Pumpkin was very difficult to produce given the hollow interior and many sections. Properly signed and in excellent condition--truly an important and fascinating design!!
In the late 1960's--early 1970's, Steuben Glass produced a series of Great Animals that were only available for a few years. Therefore, all of these large designs are highly desirable and very difficult to find. The 15 1/4" long #8243 Great Pheasant was introduced in 1970 and is both immense and graceful at the same time. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
Designed by Lloyd Atkins and introduced in 1972, the 9 1/2" #8273 Great Sitting Donkey is a magical and whimsical piece evoking fond memories of Eeyore!! Properly signed and in excellent condition.
