Web Description: 
Among the unusual Steuben pieces in the collection is a turquoise Aurene bowl, probably made between about 1905 and 1918, with applied threaded decoration. The bowl has the original Steuben paper sticker on the base. Turquoise Aurene is not seen very often, and this bowl is the only one in this color in our collection.
