Consider this adorable signed authentic Steuben Koala Bear. Marvelous design by the late Lloyd Atkins, creator of Steuben's most beloved animals and a model in crystal of a child's favorite Steiff Bear. This is an original hand made in USA of Steuben formula glass sculpture. This is a statement figurine with the superb detail and clarity that was a hallmark of Steuben.This early original large Steuben Koala is new in box scratch free condition with no chips, no cracks, no damage to the ears, no display scratches on the body or bottom wear. Perfect for the special birthday, high shelf in the nursery, or the collector. This will come wrapped in it's fine vintage Steuben flannel bag, original vintage box in good condition with care booklet. This heavy Steuben Koala Bear measures approx. 6 high and is approx. On the edge of the base bottom. Again, this is an original hand made in USA Steuben formula glass Koala, it is not a re-introduction or off shore "made for" Steuben item. Steuben was noted for their rigorous attention to detail and for the high quality of their glass. They stated in their literature that they did not market "seconds". In fact, they noted that such pieces were destroyed in house. Steuben Glass was founded by Frederick Carder in 1903 and was located in the Fingerlakes Region of New York State. By following strict standards for design and manufacture they achieved recognition as the world's premier glassworks. Steuben Glass was frequently the gift of state by US Presidents to foreign dignitaries. Steuben was a luxury brand. Because of these factors, a well maintained original handmade Steuben collectible is likely to increase in value over time. A very fair price for one of Steuben's most treasured large sculptures in flawless condition. Since Steuben's closing in late 2011 it has become increasingly difficult to locate scratch free new in box gift worthy examples of this original Steuben formula art glass. My goal is that you are satisfied with this item and the service you receive. I encourage you to ask questions. The art glass that I offer is handmade and as such may vary slightly from item to item. I appreciate your interest in this famous design and I hope you will take time to look at the other items I have listed on.
