A. L. Moore

Arthur Louis Moore (1849–1939) was an English glass-maker who specialised in stained glass windows.



Moore was one of nine children of a Clerkenwell clockmaker, and in 1871 he founded, along with a Mr. S. Gibbs, the London company of Gibbs and Moore, glassmakers. In subsequent years Moore seems to have worked on his own, operating as A. L. Moore, Glass Painters and Decorators from premises at 89 Southampton Row, London.

Moore was joined by his son Charles Eustace Moore (1880–1956) in 1896, when the company became known as A. L. Moore and Son. Their premises in Bedford Way, Russell Square, London were bombed in 1940, but under C. E. Moore the business continued until 1952.

Over the course of their careers the Moores produced over 1,000 windows in the UK and 100 overseas.
