"Théodore Heitzmann - Acid Decor Vase With Landscape."Rare vase from the Cristallerie de Lorraine (1925-1929) with a landscape motif, acid decoration from the Cristallerie de Lorraine Heitzmann. In 1925, Théodore Heitzmann, a baker who supplied bread to the crystal factory in Saint-Louis, lost a large part of his income after the creation of a bakery in the factory. He then declares that if Saint-Louis can make bread, he can make crystal. This is how the Lorena crystal factory was created. It all started modestly with a four-pot oven and a hundred workers, most of whom were trained in Saint-Louis, ensuring the production of a sophisticated crystal in the niche of tableware. The style followed the fashions which were reflected each year in the international exhibitions of tableware. In 1948, the crystal factory became a limited liability company under the name of Cristallerie Lorraine-les Fils de Théodore Heitzmann. In 1973, the company closed and reopened more modestly under the name of Société Nouvelle des Cristalleries Lorraines. In 1990, the crystal glassworks was sold to the Lalique group.
