Collection of Advertisements Issued During the Carder Era

Frederick Carder did not do a lot of advertising when trying to sell his Steuben glass. The advertising he did do appears to have occurred fairly late in the Carder Steuben era between about 1925 and 1930. The advertising took one of two forms. Steuben issued pamphlets and advertising sheets that may have gone primarily to the stores that sold Steuben. Steuben also produced full page ads in one or more of the magazines of the time.

This section of the website will show as much of this kind of material as possible. Some of the material is available at the Rakow Research Library of the Corning Museum of Glass.

Carder Steuben Plate - 6505





Section 1: Masterpieces in Glass
This is an undated booklet that highlights a variety of Steuben. It was probably issued late since most of the items are shape number 6000 and larger. It should be noted that the shape numbers shown are not original to the booklet but were added later for use on this website.

Section 2: Steuben Single Sheets
This material consisted of individual sheets in the archives of the Rakow Research Library. The photograph was on one side and a description of the items in the photo on the back side. These sheets have been gathered into one document for display on the website. Note that the shape numbers shown next to the photos are not original but were added later. The notes found on the sheets have been left as found. All of these sheets were produced by Steuben except the last one. The last one was produced by Lenox to advertise their Fountain pattern. Steuben produced matching stemware in this pattern.

Section 3: Hand Wrought Glass
This is another booklet that was constructed in a manner similar to the single sheets. There is a photo on the front with a description of the items in the photo on the back. The shape numbers shown are not original but were added later.

Section 7:Advertisement from the June 1926 edition of The House Beautiful Magazine
