Gobelins (French craftsmen's factory, established in 1662 in Paris, closed in 20th century)

Note: Established in 1662 in Paris, closed in 1694; the tapestry works reopened in 1699 and worked into the 20th century. Gobelins was established by Louis XIV for the production of furnishings for the royal household. The factory was formed largely from an amalgamation of existing workshops. The Gobelins specialized in tapestries, paintings, sculptures, metalwork, engraving, and furniture-making. Each workshop operated semi-independently, and the head of each workshop was responsible for his own accounts.
