Understanding and identifying glass is an art unto itself. Many modern examples are unmarked and take a keen eye to deconstruct and attribute. Our specialists also have a firm grasp of identifying fakes from real. This includes French glass by the most notable makers Rene Lalique, Galle and Daum Nancy.
