"Vianne Glass Company of France was founded in 1928.. They were among the biggest glass companies in France. The village of Vianne, the namesake of the company, is located near Bordeaux in southwest France. Vianne produced hand blown glass and was the last surviving glass company in France to do so. They proudly listed as having over 4000 moulds that could be used to make over 9000 shapes. It was also stated that they could produce over 3000 colors and tints.
In the last year and a half there have been continuing problems with the environment, labor laws and political issues. All of this has compromised Vianne’s ability to produce the glass it wanted. Strong competition around the world also impacted their sales.
You may be wondering how Vianne glass affects you. Well, the next time you go into a lighting store, look closely at the lamp shades and globes. Chances are they were made by Vianne. They specialized in the ornate and etched shades for all kinds of lamps. Vianne was a major provider of the glass for the Renaissance and Casablanca ceiling fans. They also made glass for outdoor lighting and sconces. All of companies that bought glass from Vianne proudly announced they used their glass.
Sadly, at the end of December 2005 came the announcement that this fine company was closing its doors . Another glass company has now disappeared, along with its ability to produce glass for many other companies and the loss of vital jobs to the region."
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
