Steuben Ivrene Bowl Calcite Opal Grotesque

From the Frederick Carder era, and as I understand, it was his favorite shape. This form is called Grotesque and is shape number 7535. In my mind this form is anything but grotesque...it should be named beautiful or stunning or striking....which are all adjectives that I would add to my description of this lovely bowl. Clearly a very artful design from the Art Glass Era of the 1920s through the 1930s.

This iridescent bowl shows luminous colors that change when viewed from different angles. It has a rainbow quality with shifting colors that would be seen in an opal. This opal coloring is usually seen with a gilded gold, usually on the outside of the glass. We think of glass lampshades, for an example.

Dating from 1932, made in Corning, NY and clearly marked on the bottom. The simply engraved word "Steuben", which was the only mark that was used on Ivrene, clearly appears on the bottom/foot. The back has a ground pontil area and four "feet" which are also smoothed and show clear age in the form of surface scratches.

Ranging in height from 5" to 6 1/4" and 11 1/2" in length, 7 1/2" wide.
There is what photographs as a chip on the foot is actually in the mold as a slight inclusion. There are no other flaws that I can see. Please be assured, this bowl is in wonderful antique condition and is a stunning example of a Grotesque Bowl
