About Lorraine Chalet Art Glass
In the Montreal area, the most notable Italian Canadian glasshouse operating during the same period was Lorraine Glass Industries. It operated from 1962-1974 and was the closest company in size and production numbers to Chalet Artistic Canada. Original Lorraine glass blowers also came from Murano and Angelo Tedesco recruited many of these artisans in 1963 to Chalet Glass. This obviously further complicates the identification process and adds to verification difficulties.. Many Lorraine and Chalet pieces also closely resemble Italian Murano art glass – hardly surprising!
Since a very large number of Chalet, Lorraine and Murano art glass is unmarked, it can be very frustrating trying to identify an unmarked “similar yet different” piece. Therefore, by default, it is very common to see many unsigned free formed glass pieces simply called “Murano” or just dubbed “Chalet style”.
The most telling identifier is whether the pontil of a heavy leaded glass pieces has a depression. The pontils of Chalet Artistic Glass and Lorraine Glass Industries heavy leaded glass pieces were consistently smooth, flat and polished. A piece of this style of glass with a depression in the pontil is most typical of art glass made on Murano.
In Cornwall, Mosaic Artistic Glass Limited opened on Rosemount Avenue and operated for about a year - employing glass blowers that had worked at Lorraine Glass Industries.
Angelo Rossi, a Master glass blower who had worked at both Chalet and Lorraine Glass Industries, has consistently produced a signature cranberry line since the company’s bankruptcy. See the "History of Chalet Artistic Canada" pages for more details.
