THE LEGEND CONTINUES

The Baccarat legend continues with a new exhibition in the exceptional setting of the Maison Baccarat’s Gallery-Museum.

Visitors will discover, or re-discover, a selection of masterpieces shown at the “Baccarat, the legend of crystal” exhibition recently held at the Petit Palais, as well as a number of pieces that have never been shown to the general public. Among them are the Horloge Soleil created by Georges Chevalier, which was displayed in the window of the first Baccarat boutique in the United States in 1948. This outstanding piece was chosen by Arthur Miller to decorate the apartment he shared with his wife Marilyn Monroe in Manhattan.
