Consider this Steuben treasure, the very rare signed. A limited edition (of only 30 made) in correct original fitted red leather box. Perfect for the wise one or for the collector.A heavy fire polished, cut and sandblasted moon like surface magnifies and refracts the light into it's rainbow pattern. On this starry dotted orb of the purest crystal a painstakingly hand engraved Night Owl perches among tree branches surveying it's kingdom.
An early creation of the famed Steuben designer, writer and outdoorsman, the late James Houston. Renown for Arctic Fisherman, Ice Hunter, Excalibur, Polar Bear with Cub, Arctic Ice Bear, Arctic Mother, Eagle on Globe, Trout & Fly, Salmon, Sea Otter and many others. At just over 8 inches in diameter and very heavy approx. 8lbs, this Steuben rarity is crystal clear with no chips, no cracks, no display wear scratches on the bottom.Upon the closest inspection I find what may be a small scratch or tool mark hidden among the tree branches. The crystal block is fully signed "steuben" in script.
This will be packed in it's original vintage excellent condition red leather fitted box with no stains, tears or off odors to the leather or velvet lining, with some minor impressions and wear to the leather surfaces.
