The Baccarat company is one of France’s oldest and most established glass-working factories, and is still in operation today.

As well as producing spectacular display pieces for exhibition, Baccarat also made glass products for the wider market. By the start of the 20th Century, ownership of a set of ‘Baccarat crystal’ glasses was a symbol of wealth and refined taste.

And although it was Baccarat’s crystal glassware – perfectly clear, lustrous works of heavy, lead-based glass – which was (and is) their most sought-after product, in the 19th Century Baccarat made a wide variety of different types of glass, including opaline, millefiori and cristallo ceramie works.
