About La Rochère
La Rochère was founded in 1475 and is therefore one of the oldest operating glass factories in the world. The factory is located in the French Vosges. Some of the very old industrial buildings hidden deep in the woods have been preserved and are still in use. A large part of the production is nowadays devoted to making glass bricks for construction. But glass is also blown and a considerable collection of traditional pressed glass is made. The best-known example of this is the glass with the honeybee, which became fashionable with the rich elite in Napoleon's time. Another popular decor is the French lily (Fleur de Lys), symbol of the French nobility. Both motifs are embossed on the glassware. A technique that was previously only possible with glass pressing.
