Whimsical and tender, Houston's sculpture captures the improbable grace of a mother hippo s she rises with her little one to breathe at the surface of a limpid pool. The underwater scene with its carpet of water plants is masterfully engraved by copper wheel.

Steuben was founded in 1903 by renowned English glass master Frederick Carder, who named it for the New York State county where the town of Corning is located. In 1933, Steuben created a prismatic crystal formula that could capture, reflect and refract light unlike anything else in the world. Since that moment, Steuben crystal has illuminated everything it touches, casting light on the joys of everyday life.

At Steuben, luxury is in the details. Flawless by design, Steuben is the epitome of the expression “crystal clear”. Exquisitely sculpted, delicately balanced; even the ping of Steuben stemware meeting for a toast is like no other. Refinements such as these, both great and small, bring a level of personal pleasure to life that can only be met when you are surrounded by the best.

An American classic, the gift of Steuben leaves an impression that will be valued for years to come. A gesture filled with generosity, exceptional taste and goodwill, it is the ultimate way to magnify important moments and milestones.
