Verlys of France, formed in 1931 as part of the Societe Anonyme Holophane Les Andelys, was one of the many French art glass manufacturers of the early 20th century who drew inspiration from the magnificent creations of Rene' Lalique. Verlys of America, a subsidiary of the Holophane Lighting Co., began production in Newark, Ohio in 1935 using many of the original french molds.
