  • Existence: 1871 (date of birth) - 1947 (date of death) - 1947


J.J. (John J.) Dandoy was a Belgian immigrant glassworker who worked in Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia, and Ohio. Dandoy was closely associated with Adolphe Bornique, a French immigrant glassmaker, whom he probably met in Pennsylvania in the late 19th century. Dandoy married Bournique's sister, Victorine, around 1898.

J. J. Dandoy and Adolphe Bournique both moved to Indiana and worked at the Opalescent Glass Works in Kokomo, Indiana in the 1900s. Bournique opened his own factory in Kokomo, and Dandoy served as its vice-president and factory manager from 1915 to 1917. He and his family then moved to Dunbar, West Virginia, and later to Lakewood, Ohio.

Dandoy died in 1947.
