Andre Delatte

1887-1953

André Delatte founded a small glassworks at Jarville, near Nancy France in 1921, where he produced large quantity of glass vessels. Delatte specialized in high-quality cameo glass from the beginning. The two or three layered glass vessels had their design etched with hydrofluoric acid with little or no additional wheel-carving. His floral and landscape designs are well conceived and executed, appropriately matching the shape of the vessel. The shapes themselves are well proportioned and attractive, with good strong colors, such as rich blues or orange. A Delatte specialty was to scissor-cut the stem of a vase along its length while it was still in a plastic state, and curl the sheared half-stems back towards the body to form handles.

Delatte also created strong Art Deco enamels and sand blasted monochrome vases. His vases are signed “Delatte” and the later monochrome vases marked “Javril.” Delatte also produced variations of popular Daum designs, which resulted in a number of law suits.
