Steuben Glass Works, an American glass manufacturer established by Frederic C. Carder in 1903 which closed its doors in 2012, produced over its century+ years of existence art glass on the same level and desirability as Tiffany. In 1933 under the supervision of Arthur A. Houghton, Jr., Steuben ceased production of the older styles of glass and began producing more modern simpler designs emphasizing truth to the materials and incorporating curvaceous shapes naturally formed during the molten glass stage. Steuben hired many well-known artists and architects over the years to design their glassware capturing the world's attention.
Steuben Glass designed and manufactured objects exclusively of a revolutionary clear-glass formula that Corning chemists had just developed in the 1930's for optical applications. A superior pure lead crystal called 10M, this new glass was unlike all previous crystal formulas. So pure that it did not require the addition of decolorizing agents nor facets. Corning's 10M was also the first glass to admit the full spectrum of light, (Roy G Biv) including ultraviolet rays, giving it an extremely high index of refraction that gave every Steuben object a visual brilliance and unsurpassed clarity.
