Since 1953, Saint Louis has periodically produced sulphide paperweights in regular and overlay treatment. However, they discontinued their production until June, 1967. The rediscovery of the manufacturing process and the techniques that had permitted the creation of these small masterpieces of the nineteenth century was not quick and easy. It has been achieved nevertheless. The rediscovery of the forgotten millefiori, lampwork, and sulphide paperweight making techniques took almost 15 years.
