Lobin studios operated from 35 rue des Ursulines in Tour at between 1853 and 1892. The family business was started by Julien Léopold Lobin(1814-1864), and run by his son Lucien Léopold Lobin (1837-1892) after 1864. The company also worked with other glass makers including a long relationship with Jean-Prosper Florence.

 

Specialising mainly in images of saints, the company obtained a number of important commissions including the choir of Orleans Cathedral, and also exported works ouside of France.
