Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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.

THIS LISTING

A pretty spectacular ombre orange-yellow centrepiece, in a long and spiky style! This is a well known model from the company, appearing in vintage catalogues.

Measuring a whopping 63cm (25") long, 22cm tall and 21cm wide, this piece in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or major scratches. The only flaw to mention is a manufacturing flaw of exposed 'ash' in the glass, on the tip of one end. Minimal and can often be seen on these hand-made pieces.

There are some bubbles in the glass from manufacturing and some light surface scratches, mainly towards the base, again very minimal.

This might be one of the incredible pieces of glass we think we've seen!
