2019 Carder Steuben and Corning Glass Auction
The Carder Steuben Club (the Club) is working with Mike Horton and Upstate Auction Company (Upstate) to conduct a live public auction of Steuben and other glass from the Corning area. The Auction will take place at the Corning Museum of Glass auditorium on Friday evening, September 20, 2019 in conjunction with the Club's annual Carder Steuben Symposium. To make this auction a success, excellent examples of Steuben glass, including glass produced during the Carder era and Steuben crystal, as well as glass produced by any Corning NY company during the time period between approximately 1875 - 1955 and other related items are needed for consignment. The goal is to auction at least 100 lots of a wide variety of items and values. Auction lots will be researched and identified, and auction estimates will be provided by Upstate Auction Company working with an expert panel from the Club. The Auction will be advertised locally as well as nationally on the Internet.
Here's what you need to do to submit an item for consignment consideration:
