Verreries Schneider (1913-1981)
The objects of the well-known glass manufactory Verreries Schneider, known under the trade name, Le Verre Français, are one of the highlights of French Art Deco. The brothers Ernest and Charles Schneider learned glass processing in the Compagnie Française du Cristal Daum and established their own company in Épinay-sur-Seine in 1913, which in the 1920s had the same standing as the famous workshop of René Lalique. The popular glass manufactorys international success was apparent especially after 1918, but suffered from the Great Depression of 1929, eventually leading to the companys dissolution in 1938. To this day, their glass creations enjoy great popularity due to their remarkable and creative forms and decorations. (ala)
