More Description

To celebrate its centenary, Steuben is planning a major exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York--together with this companion book--showcasing its most glamorous and sophisticated creations from the '30s through the '60s. The exhibition and book explore a remarkable chapter in the history of both America's premier crystal and the modern movement in art and design in New York City. Monumental bowls, stemware, and exquisitely sculpted and copper-wheel-engraved pieces from Steuben's elite mid-century lines are featured in this stunning volume. A few of the highlights include Sidney Waugh's famous Gazelle Bowl and George Thompson's Galapagos Bowl, as well as works by such celebrated artists as Salvador Dall and Isamu Noguchi. Black-and-white photographs of Steuben glass masterworks are combined with vintage photographs and ephemera from Steuben's archive that capture the look and feel of a glittering era in New York City's life and art.
