Below you can read the history of this company who ranked as one of the Finest Art Glass Studios comparable to Tiffany, Baccarat and Quezal. You seldom see one of these up for sale ...... HISTORY OF DURAND GLASS ........ Although some references indicate Durand Art Glass was founded by Victor Durand, Sr. in Vineland, New Jersey in 1924, this is only partially true. There was a company that produced glassware marked Durand in Vineland, but it was named Vineland Flint Glass Works and it came about in 1897. Victor Durand, Jr. worked with his father to found the company, which produced chemical and scientific glassware in its early years. The Durands were originally from Baccarat, France where they worked for the world renowned Cristalleries de Baccarat before migrating to the United States in the late 1800s. They both honed their skills at a number of glass factories in the United States prior to opening Vineland Flint Glass Works. Victor Durand, Jr. eventually bought his fatherâ¿¿s share of the business, and the company thrived during the early 1900s as his business holdings grew. In fact, Vineland was considered to be one of the most successful companies in the country at that time. Durand Art Glass Shop, a division of Vineland Flint Glass Works, was established in late 1924 with the help of Martin Bach, Jr. who had inherited the Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company from his father earlier that year. Unfortunately, Quezal was in distress financially when he took over and subsequently closed leaving him available to consider Durands offer of employment. After accepting the challenge to head up this new art glass venture, Bach quickly rounded up several former Quezal workers to join him. Together they made up what was know around the company as the "fancy shop" producing elegant art glass that duplicated Quezals most popular designs. The group didnâ¿¿t stop at imitating their prior work though. Transitional pieces combined Quezal influence with new techniques. But even though the fancy shop eventually produced wares distinctive to Durand, many Quezal influences lingered throughout the divisionâ¿¿s production. Itâ¿¿s interesting to note that the art glass division of Vineland Flint Glass Works was never considered profitable. Durand art glass received the Medal of Honor at the Sesquicentennial International Exposition in Philadelphia in 1926. Victor Durand tragically died in an automobile accident in 1931. Vineland Flint Glass Works was attempting to merge for a second time with another Vineland business, Kimble Glass Company, at that time. The merger was completed by Durandâ¿¿s widow, and Kimble sold off most of the Durandâ¿¿s inventory of art glass. The company made a line of bubbly glass similar to that produced by Steuben, but by the end of 1932 the fancy shop closed and all remaining stock was reportedly broken and discarded, much to the chagrin of todays collectors.
