(The Holophane Company, SA)
The Holophane Company (France) based at Les Andelys create a specialist art glassware department under the brand name “Verreries des Hanots”.
In 1925, in order to expand its artistic production, Verrerie des Hanots creates a brand specialising in art glassware for the table and other decorative objects under the name of Verlys.
This name comes from the contraction of VERrerie des AndeLYS.
In 1937 Piere D’avesn becomes artistic director at Verreries Des Hanots
This artistic devision was unfortunately not very profitable for The Holophane Company and Verlys manufacture is abandoned around 1946.
