* The Baccarat Crystal

Is a crystal factory located in the municipality of Baccarat in the department of Meurthe-et-Moselle, in Lorraine in France. In 1764 King Louis XV gave permission to found a glassware in the city of Baccarat in Lorraine to the bishop of Metz Louis-Joseph de Montmorency-Laval (1761-1802). The vast enclosure of the Compagnie des Cristalleries de Baccarat was almost identical with the little town of Baccarat. The production consisted of the manufacture of window tiles, mirrors and glass services. After the French Revolution, the company went bankrupt until its bankruptcy in 1806, when it was sold at auction to a merchant from Verdun. In 1816, the Glassworks was bought by an industrialist, Aimé-Gabriel d'Artigues (1773-1848). This was the beginning of the prestigious climb of the Cristalleries de Baccarat. The real start of the company dates from its acquisition in 1822 by a wealthy Parisian, Pierre-Antoine Godard-Desmarest. Baccarat received his first royal command in 1823 from King Louis XVIII. This was the beginning of a long series of orders for royal families and heads of state all over the world. It was also a period of strong international growth. In 1855 Baccarat won his first gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. Baccarat deposited its trademark from 1860 on his plays. The brand was a label affixed to the pieces. The production of crystal gained momentum during this period, and Baccarat has built a worldwide reputation by manufacturing high quality glasses, candlesticks, vases and perfume bottles.
