The Mont Fuji vase (1878), born from the period’s infatuation for everything Japanese, features a sumptuous naturalistic decor composed of bamboo, similar to a Japanese etching yet designed in the crystal.
The Ispahan decanter (1878) is a full reflection of the period’s fashion for oriental pieces to rival the finest decors inspired by Turkish ceramics.
The Malmaison bottles, created in 1913, became part of the Baccarat legend in 1956 when they were ordered by Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco for their royal wedding.
The Losange glass set (1930) and the Trocadéro bowl (1925), designed by Georges Chevalier, are an illustration of the purest expression of Art Deco style. Perfect, timeless proportions, the image of all Baccarat creations.
