The French House of Baccarat has been internationally recognized for its magnificent glass creations for over 200 years. During the mid-19th century, their chandeliers and tableware were favored greatly by European royalty, including Louis XVIII, Charles X, Louis Phillipe, Emperor Napoleon III, Czar Nicholas II, and numerous sultans and maharajahs throughout the Middle East. The royal courts of India, in particular, provided Baccarat with some of their most astonishing commissions for such items as thrones, tombs and chandeliers as in this phenomenal example. In fact, a chandelier created for the Maharajah of Gwalior, was so ornate and massive that it brought down with it the roof of his palace! Baccarat is still regarded as the finest glass maker in Europe and is known as both the Crystal of Kings and the King of Crystal.

Circa 1920

Baccarat Glass of Kings

The Baccarat factory was created in 1765 by a Royal decree from King Louis XV to compete with glass works being imported from Bohemia and to make use of the natural resources of the infertile Baccarat region of France. The company would go on to create some of the world's most beautiful and beloved works in glass and crystal. Today, antique glass and crystal by Baccarat is extremely rare and sought after by collectors. Read More »
