For Sale is a Utilitarian piece of Art Glass made by The Steuben Glass Company of Corning, New York. The Item is a Hand Blown "Sherbet and Under Plate" and it is done in the Verre de Soie Style of Art Glass. This was Frederick Carder's Favorite Glass. "Verre de Soie" literally means "Glass of Silk". The plate measures 5 1/2" in diameter and is 13/16" tall. The Sherbet stands 4" tall and the Sherbet opening is also 4" in diameter outside measurements. The Sherbet and Under Plate stands 4 1/4" tall when placed together.

The Sherbet and Plate depicts a Milky Translucent White Glass throughout. Both pieces have a wonderful iridescence sheen to it. 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.

The Sherbet and Under Plate is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are a few minor scratches on the bottom of the under plate but the Sherbet shows virtually no sign of wear. This Sherbet and under plate is unsigned as this Style "Verre de Soie" usually carried a paper label. The piece does display a Pontil mark on the Sherbet and the plate shows a small Pontil Scar on the bottom but it is flat to the touch. The counter Sunk Pontil is the sign of Quality Hand Blown Art Glass. I believe this to be shape number 2680 in the Steuben Catalog of shapes.

Steuben Aurene Glass is some the Highest Quality Glass you can own. At the turn of the Century LCT Tiffany Studio's Favrile line was their main competitor and their fared equally as well creating some of the nicest Art Glass Vases the World has ever seen. Steuben Sherbets and Under Plates are somewhat hard to find. You commonly find the Calcite ones but not the Verre de Soie ones. These items were used and most of them did not make it through. Those of you who collect Verre de Soie and want an excellent example do not let this one slip by you!! This piece was early in Steuben's Production as it was made, Circa 1905-1920.
