Galle was a designer who made glass, pottery, furniture, and other Art Nouveau items. Emile Galle founded his factory in France in 1874. Galle developed a marquetry process that involved embedding pieces of colored glass in the body of a large piece of glass to create a design. The name Galle was used as a mark, but it was often hidden in the design of the object. After Galle's death in 1904, the firm continued to make glass and furniture until 1931. Galle cameo and other types of glass are listed here. Pottery is in the Galle Pottery category. His furniture is listed in the Furniture category.
