|Baccarat since 1764.
The glassworks founded under the patronage of King Louis XV began making crystal during the reign of King Louis XVIII in 1817. The Second Empire brought it fame. The most famous tables are set only with Baccarat. Synonymous with refinement, hand wrought perfection, and the finest of French taste, Baccarat conquered the Royal and Imperial Courts throughout Europe. Today the new designs uphold the traditional standards and, more so than ever before, are a sign of civilization.
