Extremely Rare Dorflinger Vanderbilt Stemware – SOLD
This stem matches a Ewer in the Dorflinger museum which is documented to be commissioned by William Vanderbilt for his wedding to Virginia Fair. The height is appropriate to be matches with the tall ewer.
Deep, clear polished intaglio vintage displays itself across the bowl of these hock wines. The contrast between the clear/white grapes and the rich green is striking. The amount of detail and relief in the leaves of the vines is unfathomable. Flutes finish out the base of the bowl and run uninterrupted all the way to the applied base, which features more vintage engraving.
These stems are true rarities and of historical significance. They are on incredible blanks – both extremely clear and gorgeous green color. They measure a very tall 8″ high and 3″ across the top. I have 6 of these and would do quantity discounts. The price per stem is $1200.
