Phoenix Glass Sculptured Artware Brown and Tan/Coral Fern 7” Vases - Glass
These striking Phoenix Sculptured Artware Fern vases are two different, but popular colors: The left vase is a rich brown coloring over white cameo glass. It is in excellent condition, with a well defined mold and color. Unlike other fern vases by this manufacturer, the brown painted between the leaves also lightly dusts the fern leaves, creating a more natural looking floral pattern. The right vase’s color is more difficult to describe. It is something between tan and coral in color over a white cameo glass. The white leaves on this vase stand in strong contrast to the background.
The unmistakable shape and pattern date these pieces to between the late 1930's and 1963, although the bases and rims are free of any damage or scuffing. The vases stand just over 7" tall and are about 6" in diameter. The rim openings are approximately 4.25", and the base 3".
Reuben Haley and his son, Kenneth Haley, created Consolidated's Martele line of art glass in the mid-1920s. Kenneth then left Consolidated for the Phoenix Glass Company in 1928. He took with him 45 of Consolidated Martele’s molds, which were to become Phoenix's "Sculptured Artware" line of art glass. Phoenix continued the Martele designs under the name of Phoenix Reuben-Line from 1933-1934. Consolidated reopened and recalled their molds and continued the Martele design line until 1963 when the company closed. We have had this piece in our collection since the 1960s.
