Legras Montjoye (Saint Denis 1864 – ). Auguste Legras, an already experienced glass maker, took over the St Denis glassworks in 1864. Legras produced a massive amount of glass in many commercial types and styles and the company was very successful. It was profitable enough that the family took over the established Pantin glassworks in 1897. Somewhere around 1900, possibly at the great Paris Exhibition, Legras discovered Emile Galle, and Legras decided to seriously concentrate on producing art nouveau style glass, both Cameos like Galle and a wide range of other techniques. In 1909 Auguste retired and the company was taken over by his son Charles. Like most French Glass makers the Legras works closed between 1914 and 1919. After 1919 they quickly identified the need to move to Art Deco style production. Legras produced quite a range of different and original art glass
