Slide12 l.jpg

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 1932-1936 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.


Slide13 l.jpg

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.


Slide14 l.jpg

From 1936-194?, Consolidated expanded the line by including: Dancing Nymph line using colors we now refer to as the Reuben Line colors: dark blue, light blue, green, pink, white, and yellow. 3080C 5 1/4” Crimped Top Vase 3080F 5 1/2” Fan Vase3080 Goblet 3091 Sherbet3091 1/2 Cocktail 3095 6” Plate3098 1 1/2” Berry Bowl3099 Cup3099 1/2 SaucerAt the same time, they simplified the finishing, eliminating the ceramic colors and the hand beveling and hand polishing.


Slide15 l.jpg

According to page 145-146 of the Wilson book: Dancing Nymph line using colors we now refer to as the Reuben Line colors: dark blue, light blue, green, pink, white, and yellow. “The luncheon set pieces can be found in the following colors and finishes:Plain crystalFrosted crystalFrench crystal (figures in crystal, background frosted)Pink crystalFrosted pink (overall frosted)Green crystal (this is an odd green, toward the blue side)Frosted greenRuby stained (starting in Spring 1944): 8” and 10” plate, fan vase, crimped vase, goblet, cup and saucer,” Pan Vase

Slide52 l.jpg

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)


Slide53 l.jpg

According to the information in the Wilson book: plates from the 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.


Slide54 l.jpg

Original Ceramic Colors: (1926-1932) plates from the Light Brown (may be the “mellow honey color” Haley referred to)Light greenLight blueWhiteAmethyst?Reuben Line Colors: (1933-1936)Dark Blue (known to us as Reuben blue)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 CrystalFrench CrystalPink CrystalFrosted PinkGreen-blue CrystalFrosted Green-blue

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.


Slide77 l.jpg

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!

Slide86 l.jpg
Let’s take a look now at the one vase that was made by Phoenix which features nudes, the “Dancing Girl” vase.


Slide87 l.jpg

Page 97 of the Wilson book shows five Phoenix vases (fig. 623, 624, 625, 626, 627) . Page 98 shows two more (fig. 637 and fig. 639). Page 100 show one vase (fig 671). The following colors are shown:Fig 623 - green over milk glassFig 624 - pink shadowFig 625 - Light blue pearlizedFig 626 - Medium blue over milk glassFig 627 - tan pearlizedFig 637 - brown shadowFig639 - tan shadowFig 671 - red pearlizedHere are a few examples for you to enjoy!

Slide91 l.jpg

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.


Slide92 l.jpg

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!
