This low, wide rimmed, antique bowl is crafted in verre de soie glass by Steuben and decorated with neoclassical engraved decoration by the Hawkes Company. Steuben produced many blanks decorated by Hawkes' company through 1918 when it became part of Corning Glass Company. Verre de soie was made by Frederick Carder at Steuben from about 1905 to 1930. The name translates to glass of silk, and it is iridescent soft white or pale green and resembles silk.
