Steuben Glass Company

Steuben Glass Company

▪ American company
      glassworks founded in 1903 by T.G. Hawkes and Frederick Carder at Corning, N.Y. It was purchased by the Corning Glass Works in 1918 but continued to be directed by Carder until 1933. The company became known for fancy coloured glassware, particularly a type with an iridescent, translucent finish called Aurene. Another specialty was Intarsia glass, crystal (flint glass) glassware with soft, overlapping colour inlays. In the 1930s the firm began making glassware from a new colourless lead crystal developed by Corning. Steuben has since manufactured fine glass products of cut, engraved, and free-blown designs made almost exclusively of that type of crystal glass.
