Beautiful French Model Of A Glass Car, Daum c1980


A rare model race car designed by Xavier Froissart and realised by Daum, France, circa 1985. A mixture of frosted and polished glass give a wonderful texture to this sculpture, recalling the lines of a Le Mans single seater race-car from the 1940s. A lovely item for any car motoring enthusiast with the additional allure of being signed by Daum,

Daum is a crystal studio based in Nancy, France, founded in 1878 by Jean Daum (1825–1885). His sons, Auguste Daum (1853–1909) and Antonin Daum (1864–1931), oversaw its growth during the burgeoning Art Nouveau period. Currently Daum is the only commercial crystal manufacturer employing the pâte de verre (glass paste) process for art glass and crystal sculptures, a technique in which crushed glass is packed into a refractory mould and then fused in a kiln.
