About this title


Since its founding in 1903 by the renowned glass master Frederick Carder, Steuben glass has evolved to become the epitome of American crystal: internationally acclaimed, a gift of presidents, the treasured possession of generations of collectors. In this lavishly illustrated volume - an updated version of the 1982 book, with three additional chapters - Mary Jean Madigan traces the fascinating history and manufacture of Steuben glass from Carder's time to the present. Like the original version, this revised edition emphasizes the years after 1933, when Carder's successor, Arthur Amory Houghton, Jr., curtailed the production of colored art wares to focus on making brilliantly refractive clear glass - "the most perfect crystal the world has ever known" - exquisitely engraved by copper wheel.
