Description
 
This unique sculpted glass mill called "Feuilles" (Leaves) was designed in 1924 by Lalique founder: René-Jules Lalique in cooperation with Peugeot. Almost a century later both companies join forces one more time to create a new version of the original model which is being introduced in 2016.
Peugeot embraced the industrial age at the beginning of the 19th century (1840) with the steel industry.
In 1840, Peugeot launched the first coffee grinder, to be followed by pepper and salt grinders. Peugeot grinding mechanisms carry a lifetime warranty. It was not before 1886 that Peugeot started the production of bicycles, motorcycles and cars, sectors for which they are the most famous nowadays.
Peugeot Mills are renowned the world over for their precision made stainless steel pepper and salt grinding mechanisms.
The Peugeot patented mechanism developed in 1850 is still the one used in today's mills. A combination of specially angled channeling grooves and teeth creates a superior grind.
Mechanism features an individually cut helix-shaped grooves that act like claws which trap and hold the peppercorns as they are cracked. The claws guide the cracked pepper to the mill's teeth, which grind the pepper to the desired consistency as set by the user
Mechanism made of case-harded and treated steel to protect against wear and corrosion.
The two rows of helicoidal grooves on the mechanism are individually cut into the metal, then case hardened, making them perpetually razor sharp and virtually indestructible
