He died in 1921 and his sons who had been working with him disbanded the company in 1924. Quezal art glass is known for the quality of his glass creations and along with Tiffany's Favrile and Frederick Carder's Aurene glass made for Steuben, this glass is included in all the American art glass collections of glass from the early 20th Century.
