This could actually be Rose on Alabaster. Definitely not Calcite or Ivrene which I have seen the application on. Beth Shaut
Opinion From Last Gazette
Being a Fry collector this plate trimmed in pink may very well be Fry Foval. Pink Foval is the most desirable and hardest to find. Fry also would have ground the pontil or the entire bottom surface. The white is more opalescent than calcite and the pink is more translucent than Steubens version, Rosaline. I hope this helps.
CMoG Remembers Jane
Curating a Lifetime: Jane Shadel Spillman, A Memorial
Jane Shadel Spillman
The Corning Museum of Glass is deeply saddened by the passing of Jane Shadel Spillman, our former curator of American glass who retired in 2013 after a CMoG career that spanned nearly five decades. Jane joined the Museums 13-person staff in June 1965 as a research assistant and curator of education and became an internationally recognized expert on American glass, developing the impressive collection we have today.
During her tenure at the Museum, Jane was a prolific author, beginning with Glassmaking: Americas First Industry (1976), a 35-page catalog in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name in celebration of the nations bicentennial. It was the Museums first major exhibition after the 1972 flood. This was followed by numerous books and catalogs, countless speeches and lectures, and the acquisition of thousands of objects for the Museums American glass collection and The Rakow Research Library holdings. Not to mention, the friendships forged across the globe, with glass amateurs and professionals alike, cementing Janes reputation as an expert in her field.
