Why Dame Jeanne?
In 1347, Queen Jane, Queen of Naples and Countess of Provence (La Reine Jeanne) was expelled from her kingdom and sought refuge in Provence. As she passed through the village of Grasse, a thunderstorm hit, and she asked a local man for shelter. He was a glass blower.
The Queen asked the gentleman to demonstrate how he blew glass. Nervously, in royal company, he overdid the blowing and created an enormous bottle! She loved the bottle and suggested he name them Lady Jane bottles or Dame Jeanne.
