In answer to David Chadwick Brown question about other colors in VDS. To my knowledge there was only VDS, Yellow VDS, Aqua Marine and Cyprian. I have seen the Yellow VDS with a dark amethyst lip wrap also.
I have 2 yellow VDS items that have amethyst cintra wraps. One a bowl the other a candlestick.The candlestick is pictured in Marshall Ketchum's second edition of Frederick Carder's Steuben Glass. Jim Sutterfield

Description:This may be Cyprian but it is difficult to tell. There doesn't seem to be the greenish tint in the glass that would be characteristic of Cyprian.
