Artistic and popular French glassware

22 June 2013 to 22 September 2013

At the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth century, the Saint-Denis and Pantin glass-works were amongst the largest in France. Besides producing perfume bottles, decorated carafes and glassware for the table, François Théodore Legras (1839 – 1916) also created artistic glassware, whose glazed decors which sometimes had engraved floral or landscape decorations, made the glass-work famous. With a selection of two hundred works, archives and iconic documents, the Conches Glass Museum will present the famous and very popular Legras artistic and decorative glassware.
