Le Verre Francais Schneider Art Deco Glass Vase C. 1920-1925 For Sale
Ernest Schneider were a generation younger than Emile Galle and the Daum
brothers, whose glassworks were in the same area of France. The Schneider
brothers worked for Daum from the early 1900s, Ernest as a salesman/commercial
manager, and Charles as a freelance designer.
The brothers left Daum around 1912, and re-commissioned an old glassworks under
the name Schneider Freres et Wolff (Schneider Brothers and Wolff), a few miles
north of Paris in 1913. Henri Wolff was an architect friend of Charles
Initially they made high quality cameo vases and lamps, but the war in Europe
(1914-1918) led Charles and Ernest and most of their skilled glassworkers away
to fight in the war. They returned and re-opened their glassworks in 1917 to
make glassware needed for hospitals, and after the war they sold shares in the
company to finance getting back into the art glass market. At that time the
company was called the Societe Anonyme des Verreries Schneider.
Charles Schneider was a brilliant and versatile designer, and the company
produced a wide range of superb designs of vases, ewers, bowls, and lamps. They
were very successful in marketing their glass to major high prestige retail
stores both in Paris and overseas. They bought back their shares and re-named
the company Verrerie Schneider.
Virtually all their pieces are marked with the name SCHNEIDER or with one of
their other trademarks, which include "CHARDER"(an amalgam of CHAR from Charles and
DER from Schneider), "Le Verre Francais".
Le Verre Francais glass was also sold through major department stores in Paris
and in the USA and Europe. Sometimes the signature Charder was used in addition
to Le Verre Francais
If the word "France" appears as part of the Schneider signature, this
indicates a piece made for export.
The depression in the 1930s was a major setback for Schneider's, because their
USA market collapsed for them. Their successful but long-drawn-out court case
against David Gueron (DEGUE glass) was also a source of hardship for the
company in the early 1930s. And their superbly colored glass went out of
fashion in France. In 1937 Ernest Schneider died, and in 1939 the company was
declared bankrupt and the glassworks sold to a fruit juice company. At the
start of the Second War in 1940 the invading German army which dumped the
contents of the glassworks, destroyed many of their records, and turned it into
