For over 140 years, Daum has expertly combined the worlds of art and craft. Founded in 1878 in Nancy, France by Jean Daum, the company is known for its exceptionally made crystal sculptures and objects. As Jean passed the business to his sons during the Art Nouveau period in the early 20th century, the brand gained worldwide recognition and acclaim for its cutting-edge, fanciful, and nature-inspired designs in the popular style. In addition to its innovative products, Daum’s perfection of the incredibly rare and complex ancient Egyptian technique of pâte-de-cristal set the company apart from the rest, and still does to this day. Daum chandeliers, table lamps, glass vases, and home accessories are considered masterpieces, with carved, enameled, and engraved details, subtle contouring, and exquisite colors. Since every piece is crafted, then signed and numbered by hand, no two Daum crystal products are alike. In the age of mass production, there’s nothing more special than owning something that is genuinely one of a kind.
