Iris

IRIS
Presented at the International Exhibition of Eastern France in Nancy in 1909, the Iris vase is part of the floral repertoire of the Art Nouveau movement. The flower, which bears the name of the celebrated messenger of the gods from Greek mythology, delights for its beauty. In full bloom, it majestically unfolds across the whole surface of the vase. Cut, wheel-engraved and painted with polychrome enamels, this masterpiece is a genuine demonstration of technical brilliance. Limited edition, 50 copies. Price : $10,600

Saint Petersbourg decanter

SAINT PETERSBOURG - 1905
Chandeliers, monumental candelabras and glass services, life at the Court of Saint Petersburg glittered in the light of Baccarat crystal. Created in 1905, the Saint Petersburg decanter illustrates the legendary passion the Russians have always shown for Baccarat's unique know-how. The decanter and top, both blown with exceptional skill, are crafted in clear crystal lined with midnight blue crystal. The wheel-cut geometric patterns become dazzling sources of light. Limited edition, 18 pieces. Price : $16,000

Arizona cup

COUPE ARIZONA - 1930
In the pure tradition of the creations by Georges Chevalier, Baccarat's first artistic director, the Arizona bowl is an example of Baccarat modernity. The geometry of the patterns’ essential lines, deeply transcribed into the thickness of the crystal, produce original plays on light. Applied to clear crystal lined with blue, these incisive cut effects accentuate the radiance of the material. The sophistication of the trim blends with the purity of the silhouette, striking a perfect balance. Limited edition, 10 copies. Price : $8,700

Agrion Joli

L’AGRION JOLI - 1904
In 1904, the floral aesthetics of the Art Nouveau movement inspired Baccarat to create a series of bowls in the shape of a chrysalis, a butterfly or a dragonfly. Lined with cobalt-blue crystal, the scintillating dragonfly is the embodiment of lightness and light: it hovers over streams, delivering to the sun the infinite shades of its wings as it heralds the advent of summer. Limited edition, 25 pieces. Price : $6,700

Serviteur Muet

SERVITEUR MUET, 1909
Influenced by the style and codes of the 18th century, Baccarat presented this Dumb Waiter at the International Exhibition of Eastern France in Nancy in 1909. Four gilded bronze putti, whose arms form a gracious garland, lightly carry the elaborately cut crystal cup and vase in an everlasting dance of joy. Limited edition, 18 pieces. Price : $33,300

Les Oies Celestes vase

LES OIES CÉLESTES, 1878
Created for the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1878, this vase draws its inspiration from oriental decoration and the ceramics of Iznik. Adorned with a trim painted with polychrome enamels and gold, this exceptional piece perfectly illustrates the high-precision hand-work of the Baccarat gilders. Messengers between heaven and earth, the Celestial Geese, complete their long journey and settle in the garden of Eden that, in the moment of their appearance, becomes covered with flowers and gold. Limited edition, 12 pieces. Price : $12,600
