In September, Steuben officials announced that the 108-year-old glass maker was shutting down its factory in Corning, N.Y., and its flagship store on Madison Avenue. This was sad news as Steuben is a brand that always represented great American craftsmanship without a lot of hype. It is clearly the end of an era.
Sadly, the glass must go. As part of the brand closing, their famous glassware inventory is being liquidated. The sale is taking place online and at the Madison Avenue boutique. Most items including barware, vases and bowls are priced at about 30% off retail. Nimbus wine glasses are $45 from $75, a crystal rhino is $1462 from $1950 and a flower vase is $609 from $950.
The Madison Avenue boutique plans to stay open through November or until it runs out of merchandise. We imagine that prices will be reduced as the closing date approaches.
