Moulded glass table mat signed Verlys, a brand of the Holophane company. This company based in Les Andelys was created in 1921 by J. Wyatt, an American businessman who bought the "Holophane" patent from French physicist André Blondel. Later, the company diversified into the production of decorative objects. Some objects of this production are remarkable for their quality and were signed with the specific label "Verlys" (contraction of "Verrerie des Andelys"). They were showed at major exhibitions next to Lalique, Etling, Sabino glassworks. For the manufacture of the "Verlys", Holophane appealed to the major glass makers of that time, such as Pierre d’Avesn or Charles Mansuy from the Cristallerie Baccarat.
These pieces with shell and seaweed motifs were included in the Verlys catalogue in 1933. This dish has some scratches.
