Martin Bach Sr. was the founder of Quezal. He worked for L.C.T. Tiffany Studios from 1892-1902. The quality of his glass was as good as Tiffany, Steuben and Loetz. The Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Co was in business from 1902-1924. Quezal Art Glass pieces Rarely come up in today's market. They were more noted for their Art Glass Shades they produced by the tens of thousands. It appears that the collectors do not want to let these go. I'm quite sure the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase.
