CHARLES SCHNEIDER - Art Nouveau vase Jade, à deux anses - c. 1930-
Art Nouveau vase Jade made with intercalary decoration by Schneider, Société Anonyme des Verreries (1918-1981). Charles Schneider (1881-1953) was awarded the French Legion of Honour in 1926 and managed with his brother Ernest and sister Ernestine one of the largest art glass factories in France during the Art Deco period. The idea was to popularise art glass and make it more accessible to the public. The company had two brands: The luxury pieces which were made with advanced glass techniques like intercalary decoration, glass marquetry and wheel-carving were marked 'Schneider'and were sold by specialist art shops such as Delvaux, Rouard, La Vase Etrusque and Le Grand Depot. The second brand signed Le Verre Français or Charder was mainly sold in department stores such as Galeries Lafayette, Le Printemps and Le Bon Marche. Le Verre Français was made exclusively using the technique of acid etching, which gave good quality for a low price
