Next up, we're offering an exquisite (and rare) "Partridge In A Pear Tree" figurine by Steuben. This figurine depicts a pear sliced open to reveal a partridge resting in a golden pear tree bearing 12 pears. Designed by Lloyd Atkins, a designer at Steuben from 1948 to 2000 whose works have been featured in many Steuben exhibitions, this rare "Partridge In A Pear Tree" figurine was only available for a few months after its introduction in the fall of 1968. Our price for this hard-to-find Steuben collector item is $3,199.00.
Part of the great appeal of Steuben is in its history. Steuben is one of America's most renowned producers of collectible crystal. Founded in Corning, NY, in 1903 by English glass designer Fredrick Carder and American entrepreneur Thomas Hawkes, the company produced vases, jars, figurines, bowls, candlesticks, and decanters in a wide variety of colors and designs. After World War I, the company was merged into Corning Glass Works as the "Steuben Division," focusing upon the production of clear crystal. During the Art Deco movement, Steuben released many modern designs, and the company's work was broadly recognized for its quality. In 1954, U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower was given an engraved Steuben bowl as a gift from his cabinet. The city of Atlanta honored the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. with an engraved Steuben bowl in 1965. President Lyndon Johnson and first lady "Lady Bird" Johnson presented a Steuben bowl to Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands on the occasion of her royal wedding in 1966.
