About French Figural Bottles Marked Depose by LeGras

Just a little info about those wonderful figural bottles / decanters that are marked DEPOSE.

They are French. Depose means Registered (similar to patented or licensed, etc.)

They date from the 1890s to the 1920's.

A great many were made by the famous art glass company Le Gras et Cie started by François-Théodore Legras. They made bottles in all kinds of themes, shapes, and subjects.

Learn more aout French figural decanter bottles in this book by Gerard Wagner, published in 2007, titled: Verrerie Populaire Francaise / Les Bouteilles a Sujet.

That loosely translates to Popular French Glassware: Subject Bottles.

Perhaps your public library can find a copy.
