LEUNE Glassware vase with floral decoration signed ETALEUNE (France)
Between 1904 and 1914, the Leune establishments produced porcelain, medical glassware, trinkets, cups and vases decorated with idyllic and romantic landscapes, as well as birds and flowers, painted with enamel fixed hot. These decorative productions are affordable and serial.
Auguste Heiligenstein was technical advisor from 1922 to 1926. Specialising in glazing on glass, he provided many new and exciting creations for the company’s catalogue. From 1920-1930, the company moved premises to 28 bis of the rue du Cardinal Lemoine in Paris (5th arrondissement); and followed the current fashion in the production of moulded and blown glass incuding strong opalescent designs.
Leune, like many manufactures, went bankrupt after the 1929 crisis. In a 1936 catalogue edition, there is a latera resumption of activities under the name “Former Leune Establishment”, for laboratories, hospitals, etc. The documents are signed "LEUNE", "LEUNE/PARIS/FRANCE/MARQUE DEPOSEE", "LN", "LEUNOX FRANCE", "ETALEUNE", "ETALEUNE PARIS FRANCE", "ETALEUNE PARIS-FRANCE" or "LEUNOR".
