House Beautiful Ads For November and December1932
"...in late 1931 Amory Houghton appointed the well-known industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague as design consultant to Corning and Steuben under a one-year contract commencing in February 1932. From his Madison Avenue offices in New York City, Teague was to work out a series of new 'modern' designs for Steuben table ware, visiting the Corning plant monthly to supervise production. Teague made it clear that he did 'not expect to have any modifications, made in my designs except with my approval' and that he could not 'share responsibility for my own work with anyone else.'"
"Despite his astute reading of the potential market for Steuben glass, Teague was apparently not retained as a design consultant beyond the expiration of his first year's contract." pp.63-66, Steuben Glass, An American Tradition in Crystal, by Mary Jean Madigan
