A splendid lot of four French Art Deco blue ombre coloured glass coupes, champagne glasses or ice cream coupes. France, 1930s. All four glasses are in good condition.
The coupes are not signed, but can be attributed to Daum, Nancy.
Daum is a crystal studio based in Nancy, France, founded in 1878 by Jean Daum (1825–1885). His sons, Auguste Daum (1853–1909) and Antonin Daum (1864–1931), oversaw its growth during the Art Nouveau period.
The Daum family worked at the beginning of the Art Nouveau era and created one of France’s most prominent glassworks.
During the Universal Exhibition of 1900 Daum was awarded a ‘Grand Prix’ medal. Daum glass became more elaborate. Acid etching was often combined with carving, enamelling, and engraving on a single piece of glass to produce creative glass masterpieces. The most complicated creations also featured applied glass elements, such as handles and ornamental motifs in naturalistic forms. The Daum brothers soon became a major force in the Art Nouveau movement.
Daum has always been linked with the city of Nancy. Its main manufacturing locations are in the downtown of Nancy and a nearby village called Vannes-le-Châtel. All the pieces are still handmade by hundreds of employees in the region. Daum has a store at Place Stanislas in Nancy and Park Avenue in New York City.
