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 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.
This beautiful Steuben Crystal "Scroll Footed" console bowl, catalogue #7907, was designed in 1942 by John Dreves (1912-2002). Mr Dreves was born in College Point, New York and studied at Pratt Institute. He joined Steuben as an advertising designer in 1938 and soon after became the second resident designer at Steuben until he retired in 1972. The classic, elegant and modernistic design features four applied scroll feet to the clear round bowl. The console bowl measures 10 7/8" across and 3 7/8" in depth with "Steuben" in script etched on the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. I doubt if it was ever used.
