The Daum Company (pronounced “dome”) started in 1878 when Jean Daum, an attorney with no glassmaking experience took over a rundown watch-glass factory in Nancy, in the eastern French province of Lorraine. Finding it difficult to make a living producing watch glasses, he switched to popular tavern glasses.
After Daum’s death in 1885, his sons Auguste and Antonin took over. They showed their glassware at the Paris International Exhibition in 1889, the same exhibition that launched the Eiffel Tower.
The sons started with no experience and ended up producing exquisite art glass. They mastered complex glassmaking techniques.
