Durand Art Glass

Durand art glass is prized by collectors worldwide for its beauty and styling. Durand art glass was made between 1924 and 1931. Durand was the art glass division of Vineland Flint Glass Works which was founded by Victor Durand in 1897. Many of the glass artists came from the Quezal Art Glass company which closed in 1924. The artists at Durand were granted a great deal of freedom to produce glass in a variety of styles. Many pieces were blown using an unusual yellow glass which many collectors now refer to as "Ambergris". Durand produced a wide variety of art glass items including bowls, vases, perfume bottles, candlesticks and lamps. Durand's art glass quickly gained fame for its beauty and quality. In 1926 Durand received a medal of honor at the Sesquicentennial International Exposition in Philadelphia. Sadly production ceased in 1931 when Victor Durand died in an auto accident. Durand art glass continues to be very popular with glass collectors. Here at The Prudent Collector we are pleased to help you find the best prices on Durand art glass items of all types.
