Steuben Glass was a luxury glass made in Corning, New York for more than a century. It was founded in 1903 and became a division of of Corning Glass Works in 1918. The early focus of Steuben was on colored art glass. In the 1930s the focus shifted to making pure lead crystal.
Corning sold Steuben to Schottenstein Stores Corp. in 2008. The business had become unprofitable, and Schottenstein was not able to turn it around. They closed the Steuben business in 2011, and Corning bought back the Steuben brand name.
