From its award-winning pieces at the World Fairs to its most contemporary collections, Baccarat’s craftsmanship constitutes an extraordinary heritage. Founded in 1764, Baccarat is the fruit of a group of daring artisans who have transformed the four elements of nature – earth, air, fire and water – into crystal of unparalleled purity. Their quest for the exceptional, perpetuated by each generation, has resulted in Baccarat today totaling 50 different skillsets directly linked to the creation of crystal, 14 best craftsmen of France – the largest number among French luxury houses – and 2 knights of the Order of Arts & Letters. Driven by a pioneering culture of innovation, the artisans of Baccarat have never ceased to push the boundaries of their art.
