Thank you for contacting us with your question. I have reviewed a number of sources and as of yet have not been able to locate who made the metal parts used in Carder's flatware. I have a few other places to check in mind. If I find anything I'll be in touch.
You may want to contact the Carder Steuben club, while their focus is glass they may be able to give you direction.
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
