Art deco period - François-Théodore LEGRAS (1839-1916)

At the age of 20, he joined the glassworks near his native hamlet as a clerk. This is where he learned his craft. At 24, he left his native Vosges to work at the Plaine Saint-Denis glassworks in the town of Saint Denis near Paris where he was hired as a night clerk. Six months later, he became head of production and in 1866 at the age of 27, he became manager of the glassworks. He then built a new modern factory and a working site that over the years became an industrial complex of nearly 20,000 square metres.

He became CEO of “Legras and Cie”, then of the “Verrerie et Cristallerie de St Denis”. He specialised in the colour “vert nil” obtained using acid. The decor was often surrounded by gold and usually simple shapes.

If there is a signature (some works are not signed), it can vary: “L” associated with “Saint Denis” or “Montjoye”. In 1909, Charles Legras’ son Auguste took over the business. The signatures were then “Legras” or “Pantin” or even “Legras Cie St-Denis”, “Sargel”, “Leg” or “JEM”. Auguste filed many patents. François Théodore LEGRAS died on 2nd August 1916 at his home in Paris.
