The item is a salt shape but the Steuben site also calls this a Bon Bon shaped bowl. The bowl is done in Steuben's Blue Aurene style of art glass. This bowl measures 6 1/8" in diameter and is 1 11/16" in height. This bowl displays a low form with raised and ruffled edges.It depicts a brilliant Blue Aurene iridescence on both the face and underside. The Blue Aurene is simply beautiful. You can see vivid hues of gold overtones along the exterior top edge and looking inside the center of the bowl is a beautiful blue purple peacock iridescence. The top edge of the bowl has a very nice onion skin textured border. These are some of the most desirable feathers that attract the Steuben Blue Aurene collectors.
The bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings anywhere. The bowl also has a recessed polished pontil.This is the finishing sign of a quality piece of art glass. The bowl is signed on the underside with the Steuben etched signature "Aurene" just outside the pontil and the shape number "138" on the opposite side. As an added bonus it stilee retains a good portion of its original triangular label.
