Abstract of the user’s Molab access project

The “Real Fábrica de Cristales de San Ildefonso” (Spanish Royal Glass Factory) has elaborated high-quality pieces for more than 300 years. However, despite the glass pieces from La Granja are renowned because of their high-quality, up-to-date, chemical analyses of the pieces from La Granja have been occasional. The aim of this project is to make for the first time a comprehensive study of the historical evolution of pieces elaborated in La Granja.
