This striking and rare Napoleon III-period cave à liqueur is masterfully modeled to represent the Cirque d'Hiver, or Winter Circus. Built in Paris in 1852 by Jacques-Ignace Hittorff, the City of Paris’s Chief Architect, the Cirque d’Hiver is the world’s oldest extant circus building still in use today. This eye-catching and unique cave à liqueur pays tribute to this long-standing Parisian monument.

An object of practical use as well as beauty, the case opens by releasing the latch and lifting the lid. The cave à liqueur is the perfect home for four decanters crafted of Baccarat crystal, which boast the superior artistry for which the firm is renowned. Since the firm was established in 1764, Baccarat has garnered world acclaim for their phenomenal creations and still remains the ultimate crystal of the Continent.

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. They won their first gold medal at the 1855 International Exhibition and have continued to carry off prizes at international exhibitions since. Today, antique works by this prestigious company are exceedingly rare, especially magnificent examples such as this.
