Literature

To paint on opaline glass, the French painter Jean-Baptiste Desvignes (1786-1826) used only vegetable-based colors that he affixed to the opaline. The gilding dominated, using forms of linear palmettes, flowers, and garland patterns. Desvignes decorated in Gothic style as well as created small, illustrative scenes inspired by the fables of La Fontaine. The sets by Jean-Baptiste Desvignes ran from 1820 until approximately 1826. Afterward, his wife and his two collaborators, Vincent and Blancheron, continued using the same formulas and motifs to decorate opal that came primarily, it seems, from the Brecy crystal manufacturer, founded in 1827.
