Were celebrating World Architecture Day with a look at some of the buildings where Steuben Glass was used as an important architectural element. In the 1920s and 1930s, you could find custom-designed cast Steuben panels in the Empire State Buildings lobby, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, John Wanamakers department store in Manhattan, and even the exterior of the New Syracuse Lighting Company Building in Syracuse, NY. The firm used these major projects to advertise their services in a catalog titled Steuben Architectural Cast Glass, which you can see via the Rakow Library.
Steuben architectural cast glass, Corning Glass Works, Steuben Division, Corning, NY, ca. 1925. CMGL 139214.
