This is from my personal collection. This vase is done in Frederick Carder's most highly collected Blue Aurene glass.

I call this a large Magnum vase because of its size. The correct classification would be considered a "Tapered Shoulder Vase". The vase is rather large as it stands just shy of 8" tall at 7 15/16" and has a diameter of 7 5/8 at the shoulder. The top inside opening has a diameter of 3 1/4" and an outside one of 4 1/2". The bottom or foot of the vase is 3 13/16 in diameter.

The Circumference of the Vase at the shoulder is an amazing 24 7/8. The base glass of this vase is a cobalt blue.

The blue Iridescence or luster is just unbelievable!! You can see beautiful hues of some Gold and Purples within the iridescence. The brilliant blue iridescence on the vessel is simply Outstanding!! The should of the vessel in certain light displays a beautiful peacock blue purple iridescence.

The blue iridescence or luster on this vase is more brilliant than any LCT Tiffany Favrile blue I have ever owned. This vase looks like it was made of metal because of its highly reflective surface, yet it is so fragile as it is really glass. This is a large piece of art glass and was considered to be extremely difficult to blow and keeps its shape simply because of its size. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips or dings to the piece. The vase has a counter sunk polished pontil, the finishing sign of quality hand blown art glass. The piece is signed on the bottom outer edge that reads "Steuben" in their etched signature mark along the bottom edge and it looks like the original oval paper label as well. This is a very nice example of Steuben's Blue Aurene in both form and Iridescence. This is known as shape number 2648 in the Steuben catalog.

There were 3 sizes made and this is the largest of this shape number. This vase is guaranteed to be made by Steuben Glass. You can tell always tell Steuben's Blue Aurene from Tiffany's Blue Favrile as Steuben's texture of the glass is very smooth like a baby's butt and the Tiffany Blue has a rougher texture.

Steuben's Aurene was registered in 1904, and ceased production in 1932. No store lets you out of the building with the merchandise unless it is paid for. Maybe if enough of you do this, they will change their policy.
