Daum Frères employ Pierre D’Avesn to design and supervise production of Art Deco Glassware at the “Croismare” Glassworks which Daum took over in 1927
The purpose of buying this factory was to compete with René Lalique and others for the lucrative market of Department Stores and large-scale retailers, particularly in the USA.
Art glass produced by Daum’s “Verreries D’Art Lorrain, Verrerie De Belle-étoile” was signed either “P.d’Avesn” or “Lorrain” or “Val”.
