Steuben was founded in 1903 by renowned English glass master Frederick Carder, who named it for the New York State county where the town of Corning is located. In 1918, Steuben (pronounced with the accent on the last syllable) became part of Corning Glass Works, now Corning Incorporated.
In 1933, Steuben created a prismatic crystal formula that could capture, reflect and refract light unlike anything else in the world. Since that moment, Steuben crystal has illuminated everything it touches, casting light on the joys of everyday life.
At Steuben, luxury is in the details. Flawless by design, Steuben is the epitome of the expression “crystal clear”. Exquisitely sculpted, delicately balanced; even the ping of Steuben stemware meeting for a toast is like no other. Refinements such as these, both great and small, bring a level of personal pleasure to life that can only be met when you are surrounded by the best.
Based in New York for over a century, Steuben is crafted by accomplished artisans, polished to a brilliant gleam and inspected with an exceptional level of thought and care. At Steuben, we believe that no matter how forward our technology, the things we cherish most are those made by hand.
In 1940 Steuben commissioned the landmark exhibition 27 Artists in Crystal, featuring designs by legendary artists such as Georgia O’Keefe, Henri Matisse and Salvador Dalí. A tradition began. Today, Steuben collaborates with contemporary artists to create objects that bring pleasure to living and mark the passage of time.
An American classic, Steuben is the perfect accompaniment to a meaningful gathering and equally suited to an impromptu dinner party at home. With Steuben crystal, everyday moments – sharing a meal, lighting a candle, placing flowers – become occasions.
The gift of Steuben leaves an impression that will be valued for years to come. A gesture filled with generosity, exceptional taste and goodwill, it is the ultimate way to magnify important moments and milestones. At Steuben, we are always pleased to personalize a gift, instilling it with the sentiment, thought and feeling it deserves.
In addition to being available online, Steuben products may also be viewed and purchased at The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY, and at Gearys in Beverly Hills, CA.
We invite you to make every moment beautiful.
