Posting Number 3242   Date: 08/02/19     Return to Posting List

Steve Bender is the Steuben Business Manager for The Corning Museum of Glass. In 2012, Steve joined CMOG to assist with new business development and lead the re-launch of Steuben. His efforts to re-focus the luxury brand have resulted in a revitalized Steuben with a positive impact to the museum and the local economy.

At the Symposium Steve will provide an update on the Steuben brand and its relationship with The Corning Museum of Glass. He will also provide an overview of the crystal industry and the challenges and opportunities in todays consumer market.


Greetings, Alan -

The brown aurene vase (#2751) is represented as having a Greek Key design, an example of which can be found as a 'decoration' on the website.

However, 'Greek Key' is not properly naming the decoration of this vase. The pattern is correctly a 'Chain,' and the website lists several 'Chain' examples, among which is to be found the vase in question. For some reason the website uses 'Chain' to call up other 'Chain' examples, e.g., 6177 and 6178, but does not use that definition to call up the same decoration on some shapes adjacent to the #2751 example. Numbers 2748 and 2755, brown aurene photographs with chain decoration, will not be called up under 'Chain,' and there are only drawings, that await photographs, at 2752 and 2756, in this sequence of brown aurene vases.

A term that was not used on the website to call up this type of decoration, and I'm not sure that the term wasn't just something Revi made up when he published his 'American Art Nouveau Glass.' Instead of 'chain,' he uses 'guilloche,' and perhaps no one would ever use that as a descriptor for website access.

As always, thank you for the wonderful weekday service your Gazettes provide the membership, Alan.
