Questions about this item?

Steuben Glass
Since 1903, Steuben Glass has been made by hand at their Corning, New York factory. The unique glass is made from an outstanding optical formula. Steuben`s state-of-the-art melting ensures glass that is exceptionally pure and free of even the tiniest visual imperfections. Their skilled artisans work in teams around reheating ovens called glory holes, directed by a master "gaffer." Each gather of molten glass is carried from tank to glory hole, where it is formed "at the fire" with blowpipes, pontil rods, shears, calipers, and other tools little changed over centuries. Finished pieces are slowly cooled in annealing ovens, then cut, polished, and engraved by hand. Each example is minutely inspected before it is signed with a diamond-tipped pen. Imperfect items are destroyed.
