Daum is a crystal studio based in Nancy, France, founded in 1878 by Jean Daum. His sons, Auguste Daum (18531909) and Antonin Daum (18641931), oversaw its growth during the burgeoning Art Nouveau period. During the Universal Exhibition of 1900 Daum was awarded a Grand Prix medal. Daum glass became more elaborate, acid etching (by Jacques Gruber) was often combined with carving, enamelling and engraving on a single piece of glass to produce creative glass master-pieces.
The most complicated creations also feature applied glass elements, such as handles and ornamental motifs in naturalistic forms. The Daum brothers quickly moved on to become one of the major forces in the Art Nouveau movement, seriously rivalling Gallé, so much so that when Émile Gallé died in 1904 they became the leaders in the field of decorative glass. In 1906 Daum revived pâte de verre (glass paste), an ancient Egyptian method of glass casting, developing the method so that by the 1930s Daum's window panels used pâte de verre for richness instead of leaded or painted glass.Today Daum still used this method to produce their pieces.
