Daum was well known for its innovative take on glassware and Art Nouveau designs. The glassmaking company made a breakthrough when it collaborated with famous artists such as Salvador Dalí and Hilton McConnico. At the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, Daum’s creative team introduced cameo glass, a layered glass technique that achieves a multicolored surface. A blue and purple vase from Daum France will be available in the upcoming Interiors @1600 auction, presented by Freeman’s.
The event also highlights a set of handmade vessels from Roycroft. By the end of the 19th century, Roycroft was recognized as one of the leading sellers of Arts and Crafts products. The company, formed by artists, craftspeople, furniture makers, and others, supported the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement. A yarn-sewn table rug by Elizabeth Quincy and Catherine Lippett Donnison is another key lot. This detailed piece from 1803 depicts a countryside scene, accompanied by a document from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
