Legras Glass - History

 

Auguste Legras, a skilled glassmaker, assumed control of the St. Denis glassworks in 1864. Legras produced several types of commercial glass.

After discovering Emile Gallé’s cameo glass at the 1889 Paris Exhibition, Legras immediately started manufacturing Art Nouveau glass with cameo cuttings and enameling. In 1897, Legras also became manager of Pantin glassworks.

Augustus Legras retired in 1909 and was succeeded by his son Charles. Charles signed a contract with Rene Lalique to produce his Coty perfume bottles. Eventually, Lalique would do his own production. Legras was closed between 1914 and 1919.

In 1920, Legas merged with Pantin. The new company became Verreries et Cristalleries de St. Denis. The company continued producing Legas designs until the late 1920s/early 1930s.
