History : Steuben Glass Works is an American art glass manufacturer,
founded in the summer of 1903 by Fredrick C. Carder and
Thomas G. Hawkes in Corning, New York. Hawkes was the owner
of the largest cut glass firm then operating in Corning.
Carder was an Englishman (born 18 September 1863) who had many
years experience designing glass for Stevens and Williams in England.
Hawkes purchased the glass blanks for his cutting shop from
many sources and eventually wanted to start a factory to make the
blanks himself. Hawkes convinced Carder to come to Corning and
manage such a factory. Carder, who had been passed over for promotion
at Stevens and Williams, consented to do so.
Steuben Acid Cutback - Technology used in calcite
shades where the color of one glass is shown through the different
color of the second piece of glass when they are cased together and
then acid etched.
