Moss Agate

Moss Agate is another production which originated in England while Mr. Carder was associated with Stevens and Williams. Its original introduction in the late 19th century apperently met with the seemingly the same reception accorded it in the United States under the Steuben label some forty years later. It was not popular.

Moss Agate, as the name implies, is another Carder treatment of his desire to produce in glass an object of mineral origin. Many different finely ground particules of varied colored glasses were picked up on a piece of crystal, heated, and the rock-like formation then pulled into shape with a hook similar to the famed Larson hook for pulling feathers, whereupon it was coated with another layer of clear crystal and given a final form. abstracted from A Guide to Colored Steuben Glass 1903 - 1933 Book Two by Eric E. Ericson, p. 71
