Steuben Glass (Firm)
- Existence: 1903 (date of establishment) - 2011 (date of dissolution) - 2011
Steuben Glass was founded by Frederick Carder in 1903. Carder named his company after the county in which he set up his glass factory. Located in Corning, New York, Steuben County is located in the Finger Lakes region. Carder learned his craft in England before immigrating to the United States in 1903. Steuben Glass was purchased by Corning Glass Works. In 2008, Corning sold Steuben to Schottenstein Stores. This relationship lasted only briefly, as Schottenstein ended Steuben production in 2011. However, Corning Incorporated repurchased the brand and Steuben products can now be purchased through the Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG).
