Strawberry Mansion Further Clarification


The "clarification" in yesterday's Gazelle Gazette only muddied the waters. If the pattern was made 1931-1934, then it couldn't have been designed and made for the restoration and reopening of the mansion in the 1960s.

Did Steuben resume production of a pattern that was originally produced in the 1930s for the reopening of the mansion in the 1960s? If so, then what was the pattern called in the 1930s?

There was also a reference to "feudal" glass found on the property. Should that have been "federal," i.e., referring to design dating to the period following American independence?

I hate to be a nitpicker, but part of the mission of the CSC is to educate, and this piece hasn't done that clearly.

2nd Decoration: Lined, Gold Aurene

3rd Decoration: Ribs, Green Aurene
