Daum Nancy Glass
By Laurie Winzer, April 19, 2022
In 1878 a lawyer named Jean Daum took over a glass factory near Nancy, France as partial payment of a debt owed him. At that time, the company mostly made utilitarian glassware and glass for watches and windows. Jean's son, Auguste, originally helped him get the factory in working order. Auguste's brother, Antonin, joined the company several years after his father died.
