Glass Manufactory Daum (established 1878)
The glass manufactory Daum was established in 1878 by Jean Daum in Nancy. His sons Auguste and Antonin Daum continued the factory later on. Inspired by the famous Gallé glass, Daum became a leading glass manufacturer of Art Nouveau and Émile Gallés competitor. Daum was also known for the use of glass paste (pâte de verre). The factory referred to an ancient Egyptian method of glass casting, a process which is still in use today. (kre)
