SHOP for a PEUGEOT mill --

The classic PEUGEOT pepper mill - made in Quingey, France, not far from the Swiss border. The Peugeot family of Valentigney, Montbéliard, Franche-Comté, France, began in the manufacturing business in the 1700s. In 1810 Jean-Pierre and Jean-Frédéric Peugeot inherited their family's gristmill and converted it into foundry and steel fabrication operation. In 1842 they added production of coffee, pepper and salt grinders. The company's entry into the vehicle market was by means of crinoline dresses, which used steel rods, leading to umbrella frames, saw blades, wire wheels, and ultimately bicycles. Armand Peugeot introduced his "Le Grand Bi" penny-farthing in 1882, along with a range of other bicycles. Peugeot bicycles continued to be built until very recently, although the car company and bike company parted ways in 1926. The Peugeot Museum of Adventure in Sochaux, France has an extensive display of Peugeot automobiles, bicycles, coffee grinders and early pepper mills.
