glass was made in France by La Compagnie des Cristalleries
de Baccarat, located 150 miles from Paris. The factory
was started in 1765. The firm went bankrupt and began
operating again about 1822. Cane and millefiori paperweights
were made during the 1860 to 1880 period. The firm is
still working near Paris making paperweights and glasswares.
