Eglomized glasses is an ancient process dating back to ancient times.

The technique consists in gilding glass with a gold or metal leaf and it gained popularity thanks to  the skill of Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711-1786), and again around 1900,when it was frequently employed to decorate the signage of shops.

Through the experimentation of designers including  René Buthaud, Max Ingrand and Pierre Lardin, the technique became fashionable again during the 1930s, when it was used not only for glass panels but also for vases, frames and other ornaments.
