Steuben glass was made at the Steuben Glass Works of Corning, New York. The factory, founded by Frederick Carder and T.G. Hawkes, Sr., was purchased by the Corning Glass Company in 1918. Corning continued to make glass called Steuben. Many types of art glass were made at Steuben. Aurene is an iridescent glass. Schottenstein Stores Inc. bought 80 percent of the business in 2008. The factory closed in 2011. In 2014 the Corning Museum of Glass took over the factory and is producing some tableware, paperweights, and collectibles. Additional pieces may be found in the Cluthra and Perfume Bottle categories. For more information, explore our identification guides for Steuben, iridescent glass, and other art glass
