Designer Name: Jean Daum
Born-Died: 1825 – 1885
Style: Daum was renowned for his elaborate designs that combined engraving, enameling, carving, acid etching, and ornamental motifs in naturalistic forms.
Materials Used: A wide range of Daum's vases and sculptures featured glass, crystal, and other exquisite materials.
Specialty: Vintage Decor and Fine Art
History: The Daum family is recognized as creator of one of France's greatest glassworks. They founded their crystal studio in 1878. Antonin Daum and Auguste Daum took the helm after their father's death and oversaw the company's growth during this burgeoning period.
The Daum brothers achieved a string of successes at the turn of the century. Their firm was given the Grand Prix at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900. In addition to that, the brothers took on a prominent role in the Nancy School (Ecole de Nancy). They continued to stun the world with their magnificent naturalistic works of art.
In 1914, their factory was transformed into a military hospital. This caused a setback as the factory did not reopen until 1918. After the firm successfully adjusted to changing times, they had to abandon their old designs and focus on mass production. Daum has since then worked with notable artisans such as the Schneider brothers, Amalric Walter, and more.
