PLEASE BE SURE TO WAIT FOR INVOICE BEFORE PAYING FOR ITEM. About: Born in France in 1870 Victor Durand Jr.
Was the fourth generation in his family to work in glass. He migrated to the US and for a time was a designer for Tiffany prior to opening his own glass house, the Vineland Flint Glass Works in Vineland NJ. Although the factory originally produced utilitarian items, Durand wanted to expand into the art glass category. With the help of a few others who had previously worked for the Quezal Art Glass Decorating Company in Brooklyn NY, he began producing high quality Art Glass at the Vineland Glass Works in 1925. Durand produced very high quality Art Glass that competed with Steuben's Aurene and Tiffany's Favrile glass but the quality of his glass was greatly limited by his untimely death from a tragic auto accident in 1931.
Due to the short time that Durand produced Art Glass, the quantity of his glass was greatly limited. Durand glass is very desirable and is included in all major Art Glass collections world-wide. BEING OFFERED IS THIS SPECTACULAR!! AND MUCH HARDER TO FIND!!

Although they blew glass in a shorter period of time than any of these glass houses Durand made his mark on the art glass world. This is a quality piece of art glass that is considered much rarer because there are by far fewer examples of Durand Art Glass than his contemporaries of the day such as Tiffany, Steuben and Quezal.
