Thank you all so much. I was cleaning these lovely pieces and found a signature which is Hawkes. Frederick Carder and Thomas Hawkes founded Steuben in 1903 in Corning New York. It is common for Carder designs to be signed Hawkes. When I first saw these I thought Carder Steuben. Just one of the glasses below are signed Hawkes. So....now I have to find out if in fact these are by Frederick Carder....an on and on it goes, ha-ha. I really love the hunt for a definite attribution. It is so fun!

Carder went from S&W to USA perhaps he took some flowers with him ;D

Not at all, It is was great effort. I will take any and all help I can get, right or wrong. It will lead me down the right path. If it was easy, what fun would that be?

And yes, it is entirely possible that he brought his old designs from S&W. What got me was the shape is identical to noted Webb goblets, but didn't find any matching  S&W shapes. That is what sent me on the Webb trail.

Hi,

Cooo, you lot have been busy while I was away ;)

Very interesting outcome, with some good chuckles along the way (young Mr Hobbs wanting half a point for being trying........Oh, didn't I get that right?!?..).

I was going to mend my manners and welcome Tate to the GMB, but now that I'm so green with envy at not only one set of six, but two...........well, honestly, that's just greedy ::) :mrgreen:

Lucky fellow!! Welcome to the board :) :)

Nigel
