Georges Briard

Like Curtis Jeré, Georges Briard was the nom de plume of Jascha Brojdo, a native Ukranian who immigrated to the U.S. to study at the Art Institute of Chicago. In the 1950s, he adopted the Briard pseudonym to distinguish his commercial endeavors from that of his artistic work. Mainly consisting of glassware, Georges Briard pieces are extolled for their use of screened 24-karat gold finishes and illustrious illustration, often likened to Fornasetti for their reliance on whimsical motifs like hot air balloons, Persian-inspired scrollwork, and caricatural fruit.
