This enchanting cavé liqueur by the incomparable Baccarat exhibits magnificent artistry both inside and out. The service is comprised of four delicate Baccarat crystal decanters and 14 matching cordial glasses, each adorned with hand-painted gilt decoration. These are held within a stunning case of papier maché, decorated with classical scenes on hand-painted mother-of-pearl surrounded by gilt grape vines.

Established by the Royal Decree of Louis XV in 1765, Baccarat has consistently produced glass and crystal works that have revolutionized and dazzled the industry. From the beginning, the company received numerous royal commissions from French nobility and aristocrats across Europe, most notably Tsar Nicolas of Russia, Louis XV, Louis XVI and Napoleon. Revolution, war and economic crises have brought the firm to the brink of bankruptcy several times over the past 200 years, but Baccarat has managed to pull through each time. They won their first gold medal at the 1855 International Exhibition and have continued to carry prizes at international exhibitions since. Today, antique works by this prestigious company are exceedingly rare, especially magnificent examples such as this.

Circa 1880

Case: 14 ¼" wide x 10 ¼" deep x 12 ¾" high
