Video Translation: Hi, This is Jennifer here with City Farmhouse Antiques and I am here with this week's Find of the Week. I bet you can never guess what these are? These are actually antique Steuben Candlesticks. They are very unusual despite how old they are with their very modern looking appearance. The Steuben Glass Company was actually started in 1903 in Corning, New York by Thomas Hawkes who was an engraver and the infamous glass maker Frederick Carder. Frederick Carder was really known for the innovation behind Steuben Glass. He was the one that developed this technique known as "aurene glass". This technique was made to resemble the look of oil on water. Here you can see the lines that are formed when doing this technique. Tiffany & Company had their own technique during this time known as "favrile" with this beautiful gold luminous appearance, but aurene was even said to be more lustrous. The Steuben Company was known for their aurene glass and in fact this technique was patented in 1904. They called it aurene because it was a mixture of two words, the Latin word for gold combined with the English word sheen, thus aurene. I wanted to share these with you. These beautiful pieces that are so old and gorgeous in their own right. You can check out our other finds of the week at www.cityfarmhouseantiques.com and be sure and come like us on Facebook.
