New. Book This essential reference work provides a detailed study of Frederick Carder, his contributions to the Steuben Glass Works, and the captivating works of art he produced in glass. To dazzle and delight the reader, there are over 760 photographs and 450 line drawings, the vast majority of which provide illustration for 800 pieces of Steuben glass from the famous Rockwell collections. Reference material and photographs never before in print are provided. The text evaluates Carder and the Steuben Glass Works that he co-founded in 1903. It reviews Carder's lengthy and productive career, analyzes his changing role within the company, and places Carder's artistic contributions within the matrix of the international decorative arts industries of his time. Additional biographical information is included to illuminate the character of Carder as an artist-entrpreneur. Previous little-known aspects of Carder's life and artistic development-such as his formative years in England and his under-appreciated contributions to the cut and engraved glass industries-are discussed in separate chapters by specialists in those fields. Sections are also devoted to Carder's and Stueben's contributions to architectural glass and to Carder's studio period beginning in the 1930s. A section valuable to all collectors is one in which many aspects of identification and evaluation are covered-signatures, relative rarity, and dating.
