With 260 years of practice, the glassblowing house of Baccarat has perfected its craft. Centuries of trends and techniques have encouraged Baccarat to evolve into collections available today. Baccarat secrets have been handed down through generations of craftspeople, and at present, it takes 15 years to become a Baccarat master glassblower. Talent is perhaps the biggest secret in the Baccarat house. There are more Best Craftsmen in France award-winners that work for Baccarat than for any other French luxury business! It takes a long time to master the many techniques diligently applied to Baccarat glassware, including freehand cutting, brush-applied relief gilding, and engraving. Baccarat also must only hire the best craftspeople so that it may live up to its storied history of creating objects of perfection.
Throughout history, Baccarat has imbued pure elegance into hotels, restaurants, lounges, and commercial spaces, not to mention private residences. Baccarat is one of France’s oldest still-functioning glassblowing studios, founded in 1764 by King Louis XV in Lorraine. The purpose of Baccarat glassware and home decor is to emulate the art of living, and what better place to manifest that lifestyle than in France? The designer’s permanent works can be found mainly in Europe but also around the world, through dazzling bespoke chandeliers specifically designed for each space and client. At its inception, Baccarat created windows, mirrors, and tableware, but after 1800, when commissions and public attention from emperors and monarchs began pouring in not just from Europe but from Asia, the Middle East, and India as well, they expanded their offering. Baccarat’s beauty easily spread beyond France.
