Daum Crystal

Daum is a crystal studio based in Nancy, France, founded in 1878 by Jean Daum. His sons, Auguste Daum and Antonin Daum, oversaw its growth during the burgeoning Art Nouveau period. Currently, Daum is the only commercial crystal manufacturer employing the pâte de verre (glass paste) process for art glass and crystal sculptures, a technique in which crushed glass is packed into a refractory mold and then fused in a kiln.
