Lorraine Glass was established by Earl Meyers in 1962 and was a division of his larger holdings (S.P. Meyers and Co. Ltd) which imported other decorative goods as well as Bohemia Glass from Czechoslovakia.

Lorraine was a prominent Canadian glasshouse operating in Montreal during the same years as Chalet Artistic Glass. The Montreal factory employed about 50 workers and produced approximately 10,000 pieces a month - making it the closest company in size and production numbers to Chalet.

Lorraine products were distributed worldwide - in Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. It operated until 1974.
