Antique Steuben Verre de Soie Cyprian Iridescent Squat Bowl with Coral Rim - Style # 2687. For Sale is a beautiful Art Glass Bowl made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. This is a hand blown "Squat Bowl" in a Cyprian color.
It is done in the Verre de Soie Aquamarine Style of Art Glass with a Coral glass top border. This was Frederick Carder's Favorite Glass. "Verre de Soie" literally means "Glass of Silk". This Bowl is a nice cabinet size as it measures 2 7/8" tall and the top opening has a diameter of 4 3/8" inside measurement. The Bowl has an overall diameter of 6" with the foot having a diameter of 3".
The Bowl depicts a Milky Translucent White Iridescent Glass throughout with a tinge of green at the bottom. The Bowl is further decorated with a beautiful soft Coral border. This coral layer is applied to the exterior of the glass. The iridescence is just wonderful as you can see beautiful hues of Fuchsia, Purples and Blues. When you rub this piece of glass across your face it has a very silky feel to it, thus the name "Verre de Soie" Glass of Silk.When the bowl is held at an angle has a green hue to it in the bottom and might be actually classified as Aquamarine which is in the Verre de Soie Family. The Bowl is in good conditon! There are very minor scratches on the underside bottom exterior edge and a little wear on the sides. The Coral rim is perfect. I gently wiped off this bowl, but I will leave it up to the new owner to give it a good cleaning. The vase is unsigned as is the case with the "Cyprian" style of Art Glass. This style usually carried a paper label. This is shape number 2687 in the Steuben Catalog of shapes. I have attached a link to the Steuben Club Website to Show you below.
