This is a dish. It was designed by John Dreves and manufactured by Steuben Glass. It is dated introduced 1939 and we acquired it in 1967. Its medium is blown lead glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
The Steuben Glass Works were founded as an art glass manufacturer in 1903 in Corning, New York. Design directors worked with teams to produce a large variety of wares. John Dreves, who worked with Steuben in the 1940s and 50s, was only the second design staff member to work in residence at Corning. He is perhaps best remembered for this Olive Dish, a classic stock piece, introduced at the 1939 New York World’s Fair.
Its dimensions are
9 x 15 x 12.7 cm (3 9/16 x 5 7/8 x 5 in.)
