Dance of the Nudes glassware - Udated April 5, 2014

  • 1. Consolidated Glass Dancing Nymph Line (1926-1932, 1936-?) Tom Jiamachello for 2009 PCGCC Convention © Tom Jiamachello 2009
  • 2. Introducing: the Dancing Nymphs Line (aka Dance of the Nudes)
  • 3. Made by Consolidated Glass (1926-1932, 1936-194-?)
  • 10. Photo credits: Bill Burke Gary Wickland & Bruce Mueller Scott Montroy & David Cleveland Sue Cotter Tom Jiamachello the wide spaces of the Internet.
  • 11. Part 1 - History of the line
  • 12. The 1926 Martelé line featured an 8” salad plate with nude figures as the motif. That design would give rise to the Dancing Nymph line. As part of the Martelé line, this 8” plate was decorated using ceramic colors. Its outside edge was always beveled and polished. The ceramic color was fired on first. Then the edge of the plate was beveled and polished. This finishing technique was used from 1926-1932 when Consolidated closed and the molds went to Phoenix. The original Martelé line also included a 10” plate produced by the use of a panagraph duplicating machine.
  • 13. From 1933 - 1936, Phoenix glass produced items in the Dancing Nymph line using colors we now refer to as the Reuben Line colors: dark blue, light blue, green, pink, white, and yellow. A deep pink and a russet red color are also known. How many Dance of the Nudes items do YOU have in those colors? The pieces we known to have been produced are: 8” plate, 10” plate, 8” bowl, palace platter, palace bowl, and Pan Vase.
  • 14. From 1936-194?, Consolidated expanded the line by including: 3080C 5 1/4” Crimped Top Vase 3080F 5 1/2” Fan Vase 3080 Goblet 3091 Sherbet 3091 1/2 Cocktail 3095 6” Plate 3098 4 1/2” Berry Bowl 3099 Cup 3099 1/2 Saucer At the same time, they simplified the finishing, eliminating the ceramic colors and the hand beveling and hand polishing.
  • 16. According to page 145-146 of the Wilson book: “The luncheon set pieces can be found in the following colors and finishes: Plain crystal Frosted crystal French crystal (figures in crystal, background frosted) Pink crystal Frosted pink (overall frosted) Green crystal (this is an odd green, toward the blue side) Frosted green Ruby stained (starting in Spring 1944): 8” and 10” plate, fan vase, crimped vase, goblet, cup and saucer,” Pan Vase
  • 17. Part 2 - The line ( shape number / name)
  • 18. The Dancing Nymphs line included the following: 3080C 5 1/4” Crimped Top Vase 3080F 5 1/2” Fan Vase 3080 Goblet 3091 Sherbet 3091 1/2 Cocktail 3095 6” Plate 3096 8” Plate 3097 10” Plate 3098 4 1/2” Berry Bowl 3098 1/2 8” Bowl 3099 Cup 3099 1/2 Saucer Additional Known Items: 2840 Candlesticks - 2 nude figures 2795 B “Palace size” bowl 2795 B “Palace size” bowl Pan Vase Torchère Shade Sconces
  • 19. Let’s take a look now at each item in line and the colors we can document at this time. (As additional information comes to light, I will update this presentation.)

  • 56. 3099 1/2 Saucer - Frosted Green-blue
  • 57. Part 3 - Special Focus
  • 58. Since 1995, I have been interested in the 8” and 10” plates from the Dancing Nymphs line. In particular, I have collected the earlier ceramic color hand-beveled 8” plates. My goal is to share them with you here in order to gain answers to the following two questions: 1) In how many colors was the 8” plate produced? 2) How many of said plates are currently known? (and of course, where are they? LOL)
  • 59. According to the information in the Wilson book: Designed by Kenneth Haley, this plate started out as a crystal blank. The ceramic finish was fired on the back. The plate was then hand-beveled and hand-polished. This version of the plate was made only from 1926-1932.
  • 60. Original Ceramic Colors: (1926-1932) Light Brown (may be the “mellow honey color” Haley referred to) Light green Light blue White Amethyst? Reuben Line Colors: (1933-1936) Dark Blue (known to us as Reuben blue) Pink Later Production: (1936-194?) Plain Crystal - (as Wilson noted, the vast majority of the plain crystal plates may be from a large sale of factory glass held in Coraopolis in 1963) Frosted Crystal French Crystal Pink Crystal Frosted Pink Green-blue Crystal Frosted Green-blue
  • 61. Latest Production: (1936-1944) Light Blue (color in glass) (Coronation Blue?) Ruby-flashed (first offered in Spring 1944)
  • 62. Let’s take a look now at the 8” and 10” plates and the colors we can document at this time. (As additional information comes to light, I will update this presentation.)
  • 63. 3096 - 8” Plates

  • 80. 3096 - 8” Plates - All colors (Review)
  • 81. 3097 - 10” Plate - Clear? French Crystal?
  • 82. Part 3 - 2843 Vases
  • 83. Let’s take a look now at the one vase (x2843 Dancing Girl) that was part of the Martelé line that collectors have adopted as part of the Dance of the Nudes line, the “Pan” vase.
  • 84. Page 97 of the Wilson book shows two Consolidated vases (fig. 628 and fig. 630) that Wilson calls “Dancing Girls” vases. Figure 628 is tri-color on custard. Figure 630 is green cased and listed as extremely rare. Though not technically a part of the Dancing Nymphs line, the are close cousins. Here are a few examples for you to enjoy!

  • 100. Part 4 - The big & the rare
  • 101. Perhaps the most sought after pieces in the Dancing Nymphs line are items 2795B & 2840. These are the Palace size Bowls (2795B) & Platter and the Console Candleholders (2840). Together they made up a console set, that is, a center bowl and matching candleholders. To date, the candleholders are much harder to find, singly or as a pair, than the Palace platter.
  • 102. According to an article I found published on the Portland’s Rain of Glass website in a 2005 article on the Dancing Nymphs line by Michelle Dewitt, she states that Phoenix made the 17” palace platter, but only Consolidated made the 16” palace bowl. What are your thoughts? So, let’s take a look now at these stunning pieces!
