Steuben "Spiral" crystal bowl (pattern 8060). Originally designed by Donald Pollard, this pattern was launched by Steuben in 1954. Bowl is 7" diameter and 3.75. "Steuben" script signature on the base. Provenance: From a Charleston SC Private collection. Reference: ""Steuben Glass, An American Tradition in Crystal" by Mary Jean Madigan, page 268. Donald Pollard joined Steuben in 1950. Pollard was born in Bronxville, New York in 1924. At the Rhode Island School of Design, he worked under the trainee program of the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art and then worked in architectural theatre design. Steuben was founded in 1903 by an enterprising Englishman named Fredrick C. Carder and his partner Thomas G. Hawkes. Carder had been designing and producing glass for sometime in England for the firm Stevens and Williams. Hawkes owned a large glass cutting factory in Corning, New York and the designs that were there came from many sources. As the premier producer of exceptional American glass, Steuben took an artistic turn in the 1930s. Previously, the designers at Steuben had followed styles that were popular at retailers like Tiffany and Co. Beginning during the Art Deco movement, Steuben became known for its unique work in modernist themes in clear glass. The company produced a number of prestigious pieces during the 20th century. U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower and wife Mamie received an engraved Steuben bowl as a gift from his cabinet in 1954.7X7X3.5 Wt. 1 pd 11 oz
