This three-arm American Colonial-style brass chandelier features floral detail with etched Steuben signed shades.
Steuben Glass Works was founded in 1903 by Frederick Carder, who has honed his craft in England. The firm did fairly well in its early years, having perfected the Gold Aurene design that was very similar to iridescent art glass produced by Tiffany. However, Steuben had a hard time staying afloat during World War I when wartime restrictions made it difficult to get the materials they needed. In 1918 Steuben Glass Works became the Steuben Division of Corning Glass Works, but continued to produce colored art glass until its last known sale in 1943.
