The Many Colors of Verre de Soie

Posting Number 2752   Date: 07/14/17     Return to Posting List

Hi Alan,

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
