Tyrian Display

This Steuben variety is very apt to be confused; without recourse to the signatue as being a piece of Tiffany's stone glass, or laminated wares if you prefer. Shading from a delicate medium bluish-purple to a medium light green, it will have the lotus or ivy leaf and vine decor, as in the manner of that same decor in Aurene items.

Each and every item was signed TYRIAN, with a number. Shapes tend to be large and in the classical form. It is not known with any certainty when this ware was produced; however, from the trend of Carder's increasing tempo of activity, it probably came in the late 1920's.
