See this link for a follow up article on glass cleaning. Note the link in the article to the website of the American Institute for Conservation and to their tool for locating a conservator. Scott Hansen
Sometimes we forget to use the most beautiful things in our homes for the holidays just thought people might enjoy seeing what I have created with my Steuben. Enjoy!
Clarification of Scott Hansen's mentioning of Waher book saying that Hawkes supplied the glass formula to Steuben or Tiffin would be incorrect. The reason for Carder coming here was that Hawkes didn't know how to make glass only knowing how to cut & engrave it. Hawkes started purchasing from the European companies later in its history of the company because of cost of glass at that time.
