In a recent Gazette, Michael Krumme admired a colorless, matte finish, acid etched piece in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Here are three additional colorless acid etched examples - a small shape 6500 bowl, a large shape 938 vase and a polished finish shape 6762 vase. The 6762 vase is shown in a matte finish along with another colorless acid etched piece in this Steuben advertisement in Figure 15 from the Advertising section of the club website.
All three examples shown here as well as the Philadelphia Museum of Art piece are etched in the Mansard pattern. Mansard was apparently a popular etching pattern for colorless acid etched pieces (though not exclusive) as shapes 6031, 6760, 6761, 6763, and 6764 pieces were produced in that pattern. Other colorless acid etched patterns in shapes 6415, 6681, 6760, 6761, 6857, 6914, 6983, 7289, 7494, and 7495 can be found in the Shape Gallery of the club website.
