- Pattern: Daisy and Button
- Made in France
- Vintage: 1960’s – 1970’s
- Description: This gorgeous pressed glass dish caused us some confusion. The fact that it is the ‘Daisy and Button’ pattern pointed us towards Fenton, Duncan Miller, Smith and other American glass manufacturers because we know how popular this pattern was and that it was reproduced by many different manufacturers. However, the fact that it’s marked “Made in France” caused us to do some investigation, see below for our limited findings. The words Made in France are embossed on the inside border of the dish but we were not able to capture a good picture of it. This is a very pretty divided dish with 3 separate sections excellent for hour-devours, olives, nuts, candy or any other small food item. Great as a serving dish but also could be used on your makeup table, for earnings and small jewelry, lots of uses to corral small items.

This dish was made by Luxhem de Veropa, one of the many French glass companies located in Rive-de-Gier, a commune in the Loire department in central France which was an important center of Loire coal mining basin, glass making and iron and steel manufacture in the 19th century. However, by the late 20th century the town lost most of its heavy industries including the glass makers. The original box for this dish reads: Luxhem de Veropa, BSN Les Verreries Du Gieris which lead us to “La Verrerie du Gier, subsidiary of Bormioli Rocco & Figlio group” which filed for bankruptcy in 2004. The bankruptcy announcement states the location of affected companies is: you guessed it, Rive-de-Gier (Loire). Turns out this pattern was so popular it wasn’t just copied by American glass makers but also in other countries including France. Having said all this, it is interesting to note the Luxhem is in Germany and Veropa is in Austria. Go figure.
