Glass Panel from UNIQUE set coming from the Drouant, Paris 1924.

Original glass panel from the Drouant restaurant. The restaurant was designed by Ruhlmann in 1924.

We are also very proud to own the "One-of-a-kind" set of six tall panels exhibited on the walls of the restaurant in 1924 as illustrated on the B&W pictures, but this set is nor for sale at this moment.

In addition to this 14ft amazing panel set, we acquired this unique and last glass panel with this gold leaf bubble motif.

These glasses originate from the Drouant restaurant in Paris and have never been seen anywhere outside of the restaurant until arriving in our gallery.

Frame around glass was custom made by Morateur Gallery to display the piece.

Provenance: Restaurant Drouant Place Gaillon Paris France, designed by Emile Jacques Ruhlmann.

Charles Drouant opened this restaurant in 1880. In its early years, artists such as Renoir, Pissarro, and Rodin frequented the establishment for its renowned cuisine. Through the years, Drouant became one of the most sophisticated and prominent dining establishments in France.

The restaurant is now the monthly meeting place of the Academie du Prix Goncourt, a society of only 10 members that since 1903 has been awarding the most influential and successful writer of the year with "Le Prix Goncourt.”

During the restaurant’s renovation in the 1920’s, “The Father of Art Deco,” Emile Jacques Ruhlmann, created the entire interior design exclusively for Drouant.

Some of the most prominent components of this design were an intricate staircase with a decorative bronze and wrought iron railing, ornamental sconces, engraved glass panels (the set that we have in our gallery), as well as ceiling and floor mosaics.

Nowadays, at Drouant, The staircase and some parts of glass panels are still designing the stairway but these are currently under the protection of the French Government and will never be sold.
