Steuben introduced one new ornament every year, beginning in 1993. I’m attaching a list of these. After Steuben was sold to Schottenstein, that changed and several ornaments might be introduced the same year. Your ornament was introduced in 2011. I’m attaching a list of Steuben Christmas ornaments and a scan from a 2011 Steuben catalog, showing the snowflake.  I hope this helps!

 

Also, I was wrong about Steuben only making glass at the NY factory. Apparently, in 2003, there was a line of tableware (machine-made) in Germany produced under the Steuben name. It was priced lower than the hand-made items in NY.   Then, Schottenstein used glassmakers in Portugal to produce ornaments and other Steuben items, so I can’t say for sure whether your piece was made in NY or in Portugal.  Glad you wrote in, because I learned something new hunting for answers to your questions!
