Aurene Vase, circa 1920

Summary

Aurene was the name that Frederick Carder used for his iridescent art glass at the Steuben Glass Works made in Corning, New York. The glass produces a prismatic effect when light reflects across the surface. This elegant, floral-shaped vase combines a cased white outer shell with a dark blue iridescent interior. Steuben made many varieties of colored Aurene glass until 1932, when it moved toward more modern shapes.
