This is a reprint of THE GLASS OF FREDERICK CARDER, the definitive story of one of the most talented men in the history of glassmaking, the distinguished co-founder of the Steuben Glass Works.

Described in complete detail and pictured in thirty-two pages of color and hundreds of black-and-white photographs and drawings are all the special types of glass for which Carder was so justly famed. They include the glorious irides-cent Aurene in all its rich shades, the Tyrian, the Verre de Soie, Cyprian, Ivrene, Cintra, Cluthra, Intarsia, Diatreta, and many others. Most of these have been imitated but never duplicated.

The author, who served as Carder's assistant for a decade and remained a devoted friend for thirty years, was uniquely qualified to tell the Carder story and explain his methods and techniques. Exhaustive research enabled Mr. Gardner to list all the varied colors Carder used and the names of the scores of patterns in which his glass was engraved, cut, and etched. Of particular interest to the sophisticated collector will be the chapter telling of Carder's "rediscovery" of the lost wax process, and the reproduction of the various Steuben trademarks and Carder's signatures.

This fascinating account is further enriched with nearly three hundred black-and-white photo-graphs of the great glassmaker and specimens of his work. Approximately seven thousand line drawings from the Steuben catalogs, along with their identifying numbers, will be especially useful in detecting forgeries.

A superlative reference work for collectors, dealers, artists, historians, and anyone interested in antiques and dedicated craftsmanship, THE GLASS OF FREDERICK CARDER is the complete guide to the creative output of this remark-able man, who devoted eighty years to experimenting with and making superb glass.
