The link attached here has brought a deep sense of sadness to me. We
who appreciate quality Art, can only lament the loss of Steuben
Glass. It seems more and more, it is up to the individual artist to
produce the highest quality of his.her art, be it glass, metal,
stone, paint, or the written word.
Born to and raised by European parents, I came to know and love fine
quality, linen, lace, sterling tableware, porcelain, bone china,
crystal, and real jewelry. We were poor as I was a depression baby,
but much of the beautiful stuff had come over on the boat with my
mother. I still love and appreciate down bedding. Bless that every
time i climb into a wonderful bed.
So I lament the loss of an American Fine Art, I hope some form of
nostalgia develops in today’s youth, perhaps at their grandparents
side, which restores a love of fine anything.
