A stunning very rare Schneider Tango water / lemonade jug and tumbler glass set. 

Charles Schneider was born in Chateau-Thierry, near Paris, on 23rd February 1881.

His brother, Ernest Schneider (1877-1937), started working for Daum in 1903. By this time, Charles had started an artistic career and was already active at Daum since 1898.

  In 1913, the brothers decided to start their own business and bought a small glass factory, specialising in electric light bulbs, in association with a friend Henri Wolf. This factory was known as ‘Schneider Freres & Wolf’. The new glassworks production started with a group of about twenty workers enticed away from the Daum manufacture. At the outbreak of the World War I, the firm's activity had to be stopped and the glassworks closed by the end of 1914.

Ernest and Charles were demobbed in 1917 and the factory re-opened under the name "Societe Anonyme des Verreries Schneider”. In 1918, fire destroyed the studios at Galle and a group of artists went to Schneider’s to continue their production for Galle. This period was of great importance to Charles Schneider because he acquired the important techniques used by Galle’s artists.

 After the 1925 exhibition, various new designs were created and the factory expanded to employ about 500 workers. Always innovative, Schneider created a new technique of ‘coloured powders’ whereby the pulverised glass was mixed with metal oxides to obtain different colours and then spread on a flat surface.
