Victor Saglier (1809-1894) was a French goldsmith.
Life and work
Known for his Art Nouveau work, Saglier produced several pieces for Louis Majorelle, Daum and Émile Gallé. Its style is typically French Art Nouveau in the style of the School of Nancy. He often drew inspiration from nature for his work, the logic of which helped design both forms and settings.
Saglier made everyday objects such as glass vases, bowls and pitchers with metal mounts, planters, tea and coffee services and candlesticks in bronze or silver-yellow metal or cast zinc.
On his death, the Victor Saglier company at 12 rue d'Enghien in Paris became Saglier Frères. It was run by his brothers Eugène and André until his death in 1948.
