Cast glass for chandelier at 2 Park Avenue, NYC


In 2014, Keer was asked to reproduce some pressed glass elements for the Art Deco chandeliers in the lobby of the 2 Park Avenue building in New York City. We were also tasked with recreating the finials in glass. We did this by putting together 4 cast sections and adding a glass sphere at the bottom.

Lighting Reproduction


In 2017, the Cathedral of the Madeleine contacted Keer to reproduce some of the hand-blown glass shades in their chandeliers. We visited the site to evaluate the installation and take measurements. A mold was produced, and replacement glass was made that was both easy to install and visually matched the original shades exactly.

Historic Lighting Reproductions, 1992
Hand blown Glass for restoration of Los Angeles Central Library
Trumpets- 1 1/2"H x 10 1/2"D, Bowl- 26"Dia. X 6”


On April 29, 1986, a fire caused extensive damage to the Los Angeles Central Library. Much of the glass lighting was destroyed. In 1992, we were asked to be part of the effort to bring the interior back to its original splendor. Required were 350 glass shades of various colors, shapes, and sizes. To reproduce them we put together a team of 10 of the most skilled glassblowers in the U.S. and rented a specialized facility in New Jersey where we complete the project in two weeks.
