Baccarat : a Manufacture of Excellence

Founded in 1764 in Lorraine upon King Louis XV’s approval, the crystal factory hasn’t stopped spreading its know-how virtuosity, always at the forefront of progress and transmitted through the centuries by a craftsmen elite.

 Emblem of this manufacture, the red is incarnated in an octagonal tassel that marks every product coming out of the Baccarat workshops.It symbolises the know-how where craftsmen are working the material at hot temperatures. Obtained for the first time in 1847, this red is the result of the gradual merging of clear cristal and 24 carat gold at 540 degree. Thanks to diffraction and to the glass artist’s Breath this intense vermilion shade comes true.
