Auguste (1853-1909) and Antonin (1864-1931) Daum, ran the glass business started by their father with great success. Inspired perhaps by the success of fellow Frenchman Émile Gallé, the brothers opened a decorating studio that would produce beautiful glass with both decorative and utilitarian value. Their strength lay in their ability to combine creativity with technical excellence, placing them at the forefront of the Art Nouveau movement in France. They practiced several techniques, including the cameo glass technique started by Gallé. Daum vases also used both wheel engraving and acid etching to create fluid and lush patterns inspired by the natural world around them. Their pieces are usually signed with both name and place (Nancy) with the Cross of Lorraine incorporated into the signature.
