Quezel was a Brooklyn, New York-based glassware manufacturer.
Martin Bach and Thomas Johnson, Tiffany’s former glass mixer and foreman, started Quezel Art Glass and Decorating in Brooklyn in 1901. Many pieces of lustrous and ‘favrile’ glassware were manufactured by Bach and Johnson. Bud vases, compotes, wine glasses, sherbets, bowls, and an obvious duplicate of Tiffany’s Jack-in-the-Pulpit model were among the company’s vast selection of glass dinnerware. Non-leaded mouth-blown models up to six inches long in various trumpet, lily, and everted-bowl designs to surround a single electric light bulb were its speciality lampshades. The company did not create any new designs or procedures due to a lack of innovation. It struggled financially in 1905 and 1918, eventually closing in 1925.
