Offered is an extremely rare art glass vase by Samuel Sturgeon. It is a fine specimen piece measuring 14.25" high.
The following excerpt about Samuel Sturgeon is taken from Kelekchen's website on art glass:
"Sam Stergeon - worked for Lundberg Studios, Orient & Flume and other glass studios primarily as a faceter or cutter however, he did make some paperweights on his own from time to time (very few). He formed his own company called Glass Works Studio but stopped working in 1992. His life's work was cut short by a debilitating stroke which he never recovered from. Sam's work can be seen in museums throughout the world where exhibited but owning a Sam Stergeon paperweight will be difficult as they are a rare find and expensive. Currently at the O&F website there is a weight done by Sam, asking price is $1000.00."
This vase showcases the superior faceting skills of Samuel Sturgeon. While his paper weights are rare, a vase of this size is extremely rare. It is in excellent condition. It is signed on the bottom.
