Some of the most unique and beautiful lamps that have come into the shop at House of Andala are called St. Clair Lamps. These lamps are extraordinary examples of art glass and have an Indiana connection.
In the late 19th century glass artisan John St. Clair and his wife Rosalie came to the United States from the Alsace-Lorrain region in France. At the time, they were escaping the turmoil that occurred with the German annexation of that part of France. They later moved to Elwood, Indiana where the glass industry was booming thanks to an ample supply of natural gas and quality local sand in the area.
