While there are many high-quality kinds of glass, there is something special about Lalique and Daum glass that was manufactured in France. Read on to find out what makes each of these beautiful glass designs unique and if they are damaged what options are available to you.
Rene Jules Lalique was a glassmaker and jeweler that crafted his work in France in the late 1800s and early 1900s. His Art Nouveau jewelry was famous worldwide for its creativity before he turned to glassmaking, which is what truly captured global attention. Known for an Art Deco style, he created art glass sculptures, vases and ornamental pieces. Oddly he is also known for his kitchenware and lamps and his many of his glass sculpture pieces feature animals or foliage and serene nature scenes.
Although Daum was a glass art studio founded in France in the early 1900s, the techniques used by Auguste and Antonin Daum are not quite as recent. Called pate de verre, their glass casting technique was borrowed from the ancient Egyptians. The method involves melting different colors of crushed glass in a mold before melting the pieces together in a kiln. With this method, the studio was able to create colorful pieces of art without using paint.
Because Daum glass is so colorful, it can be hard for some to repair. The process also involves shaping and polishing, which each present challenges, but experts are able to take on that challenge and present a piece almost identical to the original.
