References on Schneider, Le Verre Francais

The following mentioned books, all have either a section specifically dedicated on the Schneider Company, a mention of the Company's name with some detailed information and/or at least pictures of examples of Schneider art glass. Most of them do have a special category for Schneider/Le Verre Francais art glass. Even though we were very thorough in our research, we may not have listed all of the books, so please let us know if we have forgotten a book. This page will be updated as we find more references.

We strongly recommend that anybody with the slightest interest in Charles Schneider's art glass read some of these books. Schneider pieces are not inexpensive but keep their value. On the other hand, if one is not well informed and buys a reproduction or fake, the mistake is generally quite costly and the piece close to worthless at the time of resale. We unfortunately see it almost every week on the road and web sites such as Ebay. Please, study your passion well, before any purchases and buy from reputable sources.
