Grenelle

The Grenelle glassworks - now generally accepted to be the "sixth" French factory - was an extremely short-lived venture. It was founded in 1851, probably by glassworkers who lost their jobs when the Choisy-le-Roi factory closed down. Current research indicates that paperweight production began ca. 1854/55 - most likely taking advantage of the expertise of the glassworkers who had been involved in millefiori production at Choisy-le-Roi. After 1856 there appear to be no more records of the firm.
