Baccarat Crystal

A mere mention of the name Baccarat brings forth visions of luxury and elegance, and for good reason. A company with origins dating back to the reign of Louis XV, Baccarat crystal, from decanters to candelabra, has defined the utmost in exceptional crystal glassware for more than two centuries.

Baccarat was established by King Louis XV in 1764 in the eastern French town of the same name in order to produce utilitarian goods, such as windowpanes, as well as more elegant items, like stemware. Fifty years later, Baccarat installed their first crystal ovens and soon after received their first royal commission. Their steady ascent to acclaim arose from their masterful crystal pieces. Characterized by pristine brilliance and elegant cut designs, Baccarat crystal was soon renowned around the world for their refined and even regal designs, with their patterns featured on many royal tables over the course of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Now featuring pieces in boutiques around the globe, Baccarat crystal still captivates collectors with its remarkably universal appeal. Whether it's a full set of Baccarat champagne glasses or a stunning Baccarat chandelier, Baccarat crystal will always exude the elegance of history even in the most contemporary setting.
