The glass rests upon a Reuge Swiss music box that plays music from the Nutcracker Suite. This rare beautiful piece is new in box with no chips, no cracks, no scuffs, no scratches. This is a heavy design with the weight and clarity Steuben was renown for. It will come wrapped in its fine new condition Steuben flannel bag and fine vintage condition Steuben box with a Steuben care folder. Steuben was noted for their rigorous attention to detail and for the high quality of their glass.They stated in their literature that they did not market "seconds". In fact, they noted that such pieces were destroyed in house. Steuben Glass was founded by Frederick Carder in 1903 and was located in the Fingerlakes Region of New York State. By following strict standards for design and manufacture they achieved recognition as the world's premier glassworks.
Steuben Glass was frequently the gift of state by US Presidents to foreign dignitaries. Steuben, a recognized luxury brand. Because of these factors, a well maintained/handmade Steuben collectible will increase in value over time. Since the glassworks closed in 2011 it is almost impossible to find scratch free, gift worthy examples of this art glass. My goal is that you are satisfied with this item and the service you receive.
I encourage you to ask questions. I appreciate your interest in this rare item and I hope you will take time to look at the other Steuben items I have listed on.
