Today we are delighted to offer for sale a wonderful and rare 1920’s Steuben Frederick Carder Cluthra art glass vase! Frederick Carder (September 18, 1863 – December 10, 1963) was a glass-maker, glass designer, and glass artist who was active in the glass industry in both England and the United States. Known for his experimentation with form and color, Carder’s work remains popular among knowledgeable collectors and can be found in numerous museum collections.
This 1920s vase is un-signed but clearly and undoubtedly the work of Frederick Carder for Steuben as any collector and expert can attest. The vase is finely and solidly crafted of custard/cream-colored Cluthra glass in an urn-form shape, with applied heart-shaped handles, and deep polished-pontil on bottom. The piece is the epitome of elegant streamlined Art Deco high style and craftsmanship.
Vase presents beautifully and is in excellent antique condition, with very minimal display wear and patina commensurate with age. There are a few scattered and hard to see minute surface air bubbles (occurred in the manufacturing process). No repairs of restorations. Add refined Art Deco style and elegance to any fine art glass collection with this rare vase.
Dimensions: 9-1/2″ in height, 7″ in length, 4-7/16″ in diameter (top), 3-15/16″ in diameter (bottom)
