Steuben Without Documentation
This section will show a number of Carder Steuben pieces that are known to have been made by Steuben but are not documented in the existing factory records. These pieces are known to have been made by Steuben because color, blowing techniques or types of finishes that were known to have been used by Steuben but not by other manufacturers are present.
The existing factory records while extensive are not complete. There are gaps in the records both large and small. The large gaps may exist because some series of numbers were not used. This is probably the case for the numbers in the 4000 series. Small gaps may exist because the pages are now lost or because the numbers were not used. The records mention some numbers that were not assigned. These records are very important for the identification of Steuben. They consist of drawings, sometimes up to three or more versions, as well as size, color and cost information of the glass. The drawings in these records form the basis for the drawings shown in Paul Gardners book The Glass of Frederick Carder as well as the drawings on this website.
Occasionally a piece of glass will surface that uses colors and techniques that Steuben used but the drawings cannot be found in the Gardner book or in the factory records. The pieces shown in this section are those that have been determined to have been made by Steuben even though the factory documentation has not been found.
