I.D. Question

Posting Number 3612   Date: 11/30/21     Return to Posting List

Hi Alan,

I would like to enlist your help, and by extension, that of the CSC membership. The small, flared lattice-type bowl in the attached pictures was recently donated to the Historical Glass Museum in Redlands, California. I could not find a piece with the same shape in the club's Shape Gallery, nor in the Steuben reference books in my library -- though perhaps I've overlooked it. It is ground and polished flat on the bottom, and rings like a bell when tapped gently. There is no acid stamp or diamond pencil signature on the bottom. The bowl measures roughly 5-1/2 inches across, and perhaps 4 inches high. (I wish I had written down the measurements.) Could this be Steuben, or is it the work of another quality glassmaker?

Thank you for any help you and our members can offer.

Best regards,

Michael Krumme

Los Angeles

Let The Gazette suggest some clues and perhaps elicit some responses--

see shape#s 644, 666, 2896, 7717

see several baskets pictured in the Dimitroff book @ p. 66, Fig. 4.58. All can be found on the shape index on the Carder Steuben Club website.

The late dealer Neil Kohut commenting on the technique of weaving the glass, says:

├┐MOST LATTICE WORK IN PORCELAIN IS MOLDED, BUT EVEN IF IT IS HANDMADE IT IS A HUNDRED TIMES SIMPLER TO MAKE THAN IT IS IN GLASS. BECAUSE GLASS IS MOLTEN WHEN BEING WORKED IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO KEEP THE DIAMONDS FROM COLLAPSING OR LOSING THEIR SHAPE. ALSO, THE PIECE MUST BE REHEATED WITH EACH FEW ADDITIONAL COILS OF GLASS, TO KEEP IT FROM FRACTURING. THEN THERE IS THE DIFFICULTY OF WORKING WITH SOMETHING THAT HOT AND KEEPING THE ENTIRE PIECE ROUND. INTERWEAVING COILS OF CLAY HAVE NONE OF THESE PROBLEMS. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY SO FEW GLASS COMPANIES EVEN ATTEMPTED THIS TECHNIQUE.
