André Hunebelle was a French maître verrier and film director. He was born on 1 September 1896 in Meudon, and died on 27 November 1985 in Nice.
After attending polytechnic school for mathematics, he became a decorator, a designer, and then a master glass maker in the mid-1920s (first recorded exhibition PARIS 1927 included piece "Fruit & Foliage"). His work is known for its clean lines, which are elegant and singularly strong. He exhibited his own glass in a luxurious store located at 2 Avenue Victor-Emmanuel III, at the roundabout of the Champs Èlysées in Paris. Hunebelle's store ceased all activity in 1938 prior to World War II.
A wonderful vintage Art Deco find!
