Daum Nancy Glass, Daum Crystal, Antique Daum Art Glass For Sale
When Jean Daum assumed control of the Verrerie Sainte-Catherine, after the previous owners defaulted on their loans, he could not have imagined that well over one hundred years later people would express such a passion for antique Daum art glass made by his sons.
The company was originally known for making watch glass and drinking glasses. We have an illness that left Antonin Daum bedridden for several months in 1890 to thank for Daum Art Nouveau glass. Whilst ill Antonin began sketching floral designs for vases which went into production as soon as he recovered. These designs changed the direction of the company forever.
Daum glass is defined by quality and variety all of which stems from this first foray into art glass. Our stunning range of Daum cameo glass, Daum Pàte de Vere glass, and Daum Art Deco glass would never have existed if it were it not for Antonin’s misfortune.
