Frederick Carder Steuben Gold Aurene Vase, Circa 20's - American
It is with precision methodology that Frederick Carder achieved his Aurene Works and this one is quite wonderful with its' rainbow of iridescent hues from cobalt through green to crimson with a ground of gold and the signature silvery cast. Carder first introduced these wonderful pieces in 1904 and they remained very popular through the 30's. Early on Tiffany went to war with Carder claiming copying of their Favrile glass, but actually the two companies used quite different methods to achieve their pieces and the silvery cast on the Carder Works clearly separates them from the Favrile Glass of the same period.
Large and commanding, this vase measures 12" in height.
The colors are much more subtle than the camera's eye insists. There are no harsh separations of color, just a magical graduation playing tricks on the eye from every vantage. Even the finish plays with viewer. It is at once silky and velvety at another glance.
CONDITION: Very fine antique condition. Slight wheel marks at the shoulder do not detract. Expected wear at the underside of the base. All appropriate markings including the style # 2908. Produced at the Steuben Studio in Corning , New York in the 1920's.
This piece will be professionally packaged by ENVOY for safe, insured international shipping.
