"King Mage, Melchior, Glass Spun From Nevers, Early 18th"
  • King mage: Melchior
  • "Glass spun of Nevers", lamp work
  • Nevers (?), France
  • Early eighteenth century
  • Excellent condition
  • Work to the lamp attested since the sixteenth century. From tubes, chopsticks or glass rolls softened with the heat of a flame of an oil lamp, then worked with pincers or blown, are made figurines, necklaces, pearls ... This work develops in Saint-Germain-en-Laye then Nevers by the installation of glassmakers altéristes. This activity was flourishing in Nevers in the 17th century. Nevers glassworks sold the raw material to enamellers from Nevers, Paris, Orleans, Saumur, Clermont, Saint-Germain-en-Laye ... the term "spun glass of Nevers" therefore corresponds to objects of geographical origin and varied dating.
