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.

Today, antique glass and crystal by Baccarat is extremely rare and sought after by collectors. Read More »
