Today I am looking and learning about Durand art glass.
According to the Antiquarian:
The Durand Art Glass Co. never existed. Durand Art Glass was produced originally by Vineland Flint Glassworks owned by Mr. Victor Durand, Jr. and later for a short time after Durand’s death by Kimble Glass Company, Vineland Flint Division.
Victor Durand, Jr. was born in Baccarat, France. As several generations before him, Victor, at the age of 12, went to work in a local glassworks. Victor’s grandfather and father worked for Cristalleries de Baccarat, a famous glassworks that was established in 1764. In 1882, Victor Durand, Sr. immigrated to the U.S. Victor, Sr. worked for Wheaton Glass Works and Whitall-Tatum and Company. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
