Baccarat's Journey from World Fairs to Artistic Mastery

From the big world fairs of the 19th century to today's major art happenings. Chasing perfection, Baccarat has built a treasure trove of classic collections, unique treasures, and huge showpieces over time.

This know-how is really part of the Maison's core. Lots of the craftsperson families have been with Baccarat for many generations. They use similar skills and sometimes even the same tools to make pieces just like their dads and granddads did. This passion for making things by hand is really something you can feel. Bright, heavy, magical – Baccarat's crystal glass sparks a true happiness for elegant living.

The Artistic Legacy and Innovation of Baccarat Crystal

Crystal glass is a kind of glass that gets special qualities by adding precious metal oxides. This makes crystal glass very flexible, easy to polish, clear, and heavy compared to regular glass. The House of Baccarat, being a leader in its field, came up with unique recipes long ago that give Baccarat crystal its unmatched quality worldwide.

Baccarat's signature is its red crystal glass. This is made by mixing pure gold into the basic ingredients. At very specific temperatures, the glass magically changes color. Baccarat was among the first to master this magical process. The special ruby red of Baccarat crystal, still known today as Baccarat red, stands as an unmatched work of art from France's biggest crystal maker.

Hundreds of artisans, possessing around fifty different skills, collaborate closely to create Baccarat's exceptional crystal. Many are among France's finest craftsmen, celebrated every four years in the "Meilleurs Ouvriers de France" national competition. The fire of their irreplaceable skill shines through each piece of Baccarat glass. It's a flame they pass down to the next generation through the company's own school.

Baccarat's unique skill set also attracts world-famous artists and designers. The company encourages them to come together and share ideas to expand the limits of crystal glass art. In the Baccarat collection, you can find the work of famous artists like Ettore Sottsass, Philippe Starck, Kenzo Takada, Marcel Wanders, Thomas Bastide, and Mathias.

The Art and Mastery of Baccarat's Crystal Collections

The Maison Baccarat is famous for its crystal glassware, vases, and decorative pieces that bring a cozy shine to any space. From classic, historic designs to thrilling new pieces, explore the eye-catching style of Baccarat glassware collections.

No design is as well-known as the iconic Harcourt 1841 glasses. Made for Napoleon III, the Harcourt wine glass is the oldest piece in Baccarat's collection. Today, the Harcourt series continues to mark special moments around the globe as a symbol of timeless modernity.

Simple shapes in perfect balance. The Octogone vases enlarge the octagonal patterns usually found on Baccarat's chandeliers. Meanwhile, the round Louxor vases draw their inspiration from ancient Egypt. Adorned with pyramid-like cuts, these crystal vases cast endless reflections, much like kaleidoscopes.

The Harmonie glasses mix a vintage feel with a modern look. Their long, parallel cuts enhance the slender shape of the glasses. Whether it's highball glasses for mixed drinks, tumblers for hard liquor, or decanters for your chosen whiskey, the Harmonie series gives any bar a refined and classy touch.
