Verrerie D’art Degué, Compiègne 1919-1939
David Gueron, of Turkish origin and a former fighter of the French Foreign Legion, was the founder of the “Cristalleries De Compiegne”.
In 1926 Gueron founded a new factory, which he called “Verrerie D’Art Degue” and put his full attention on the designing and production of Art Deco luxury art-glass.
His factory was located on the “Boulevard Malesherbes” and his showroom was on the “41 rue de Paris”.
Gueron foolishly copied the designs of other successful French glass artists like Daum, Galle, Muller Frères and Schneider who took him to court.
The lengthily law process (1926-1932), cost both firms a lot of money and financially ruined both companies even though Schneider won.
When the Second World War started David Gueron shut his classwork and fled France and was lat seen in Paris in 1949.
