This striking, six-pronged Green Glass Vase (circa 1931) is part of a small group of modernist art glass by Frederick Carder for the Steuben Division of Corning Glass Works. Carder was a glass blower, born and trained in England. He preferred traditional forms and elaborate ornament, but like many of his contemporaries active in the late 1920s, he responded to the international interest in abstraction and avant-garde experimentation by incorporating sharp angles, asymmetry, and bright color combinations into some of his designs.

Holy Cow! I can’t even standhow much I love this collection of vintage Pink Pyrex kitchenware. To own something this grand and this pink would be my kitchen fantasy. But first, I would need a bigger kitchen in which to store, display, and fully worship it.
