Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a gorgeous and rare Carder Era Steuben gold Aurene pedestal centerpiece bowl, shape #3080, c. The bowl has beautiful coloration in the glass with rich iridescent golden tones on upper body and blue/purple hues on pedestal base.
This impressive centerpiece has an "Atomic Cloud" shape as described in Eric Ericson's book. This name was not used by Steuben but was given to this shape later by Steuben collectors. Aurene glass was created by Frederick Carder, one of the founders of Steuben Glass in Corning, N. Marked with e tched signature on base with "Aurene" and Shape "#3080". Also has a gold label on base which reads Controlled Aurene Glass Haviland & Co.This centerpiece is pictured on page 246 Illus. 10.119 of book "Frederick Carder and Steuben Glass" by Thomas Dimitroff. Measures 5 1/2" high with a top diameter of 10". This stunning piece is in excellent Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Hand blown items often have small inconsistencies and with this centerpiece, the top just slightly off center/uneven. This is the first Atomic Cloud piece I have been in this larger size. This stunning piece is very rare and worthy of being in any Steuben glass collection. Items produced during the Frederick Carder era at Steuben Glass Works are all highly desired and are included in all the major American Art Glass collections and this one is as good as it gets!
