Can I have a part evaluated at DAUM?
DAUM cannot evaluate collector’s items of products created by the Manufacture.
DAUM can only possibly attest to the manufacture, marketing and signature of the product with regard to all DAUM collections and the numerous archives at its disposal.
DAUM can only give the value of the public prices of the products present in its catalogs, however this has no expert value.
Only a licensed expert or a commissioner can give financial values on products not listed in the current catalogs. These experts and commissioner can be easily found from search engines on the internet.
How can I repair a fallen or broken part? Is everything repairable?
Due to our manufacturing technique and the peculiarities of DAUM crystal, each piece is unique and their repair is not always materially possible. The customer who is at the origin of the repair request therefore acknowledges having taken note of the technical constraints of the crystal and the fragility they generate. Thus, DAUM declines all responsibility in the event that the part is irreparable or irreplaceable and / or the intervention made on the said part would result in any partial or total damage to the latter.
To do this, a first assessment, by the Daum quality service, is carried out on photos, to assess whether a repair is possible. However, although possible on a photo, this does not imply that it is in reality, it is only a subjective opinion which will have to be confirmed via a more in-depth expertise.
After DAUM’s agreement and if the repair can be considered on a photo, the part can be returned to the factory for expertise, confirmation of feasibility and repair estimate.
A return slip will be sent to the owner of the part to be repaired and / or to all persons who will send it. All returns must be accompanied by this slip (completed, signed and or stamped by the owner of the part and or any person who can replace it), which must be clearly fixed on the top of the package (any shipment not accompanied by this duly completed and signed slip will not be taken into account)
We recommend taking all necessary precautions in the packaging and shipping of the part which by nature is very fragile and therefore must be packaged and shipped accordingly. DAUM cannot be held responsible for damage caused to the part during transport, even though it has not made a reservation on the delivery note.
Please note, postage due shipments are refused by DAUM.
- On estimate expressly accepted by the customer (owner of the part or any person who can replace it), the repair is carried out and the part returned to the customer. If after expertise the possibility of repair is not confirmed, the part is returned to the customer as is.
- In view of the development of certain manufacturing techniques and equipment, DAUM may recommend (without this in any way binding it) to contact an independent craftsman to repair certain old parts.
In all cases, transport and insurance costs are the responsibility of the customer.
How to maintain the brilliance of Daum pieces?
We recommend that you maintain your Daum products with a soft, dry cloth of the microfiber type, especially without adding water, detergent or maintenance.
In the case of agglomerated dust, we recommend:
- Wash in clean tempered water, without detergent
- 24h drying
- Applying liquid wax with a brush or spray from the Daum maintenance kit, then drying again
- Polish with a soft, lint-free cloth
If the part has bronze or other metal parts, it is best not to get them wet, and simply dust them off and then polish with a soft cloth.
Regarding usage recommendations, we recommend the following points:
- Do not position the part outside, or protected from the sun and bad weather
- Avoid positioning directly near a too strong heat source in order to avoid thermal shocks
These are recommendations only and have no binding value. DAUM cannot be held responsible for the use and or maintenance that is made of DAUM parts after their purchase.

The edition of a piece in 8 copies corresponds to a regulated practice in the art world.

What does "glass paste" and / or "crystal paste" mean?
Glass paste is a rare and old glass technique that dates back to antiquity: By a process of foundry and lost wax casting, this artisanal technique allows the creation of sculptural pieces.
Daum rediscovered it in 1968 by reworking it with crystal. This unique know-how is still operated today by the best master glassmakers.
This artisanal technique ensures a very particular rendering of material, impossible to obtain with a traditional technique of blown crystal. Shine, intensity, nuances of colors and bubbles, are the singularities of Daum crystal paste pieces.
