Review

This large modern stained glass window is an incredible piece for a bar, coffee, bistro or restaurant decoration. It features a courteous scene in neo-Renaissance style, with richly dressed characters playing musical instruments and holding parrots. The scene takes place in a landscape, decorated with foliated scrolls and masks. This decorative wall pannel was realized in the verre églomisé technique by Segeron Frères in Poitiers (France).

Literature

The verre églomisé technique consists of placing a thin leaf of gold or silver under glass. A drawing is then executed in drypoint and is held in place with a second layer or a glass plate. The technique dates back to Ancient Egypt. During the Renaissance, verre églomisé was used to decorate cabinet doors and drawers with rinceaux and arabesques on gold backgrounds. Beginning in the 18th century, the technique spread throughout Europe and could be found on trinkets, candy dishes, snuff boxes, and mirrors. In France, Jean-Baptiste Glomy (circa 1711-1786), a Parisian who did work for Louis XV and XVI, brought the technique back into fashion. He used the technique to embellish the framing of his engravings, and in doing so gave his own name to the process. In applying his engravings to everyday objects he came to such success that verre églomisé continues to carry his name. Despite its fragility, the process continued to be used throughout the 19th century and through the 1950's.
