This bowl was one of the most significant designs to come from Steuben after the company was reorganized in 1933. It was the first piece for Steuben by Sidney Waugh, Chief Associate Designer until his death in 1963. Over three decades Waugh established Steuben's artistic direction while also designing both form and decoration for many important pieces.
The bowl is also Steuben's first major engraved design utilizing all of its glassmaking techniques: blowing, cutting, polishing, and copper wheel engraving. For years to come, the distinguishing traits of Steuben's production would be large and weighty basic forms with added decoration.
