Baccarat Crystal is one of the most prestigious and recognised brands in the world and known for their beautiful designs and high-quality products. The company was founded in the small town of Baccarat, France when in 1764, King Louis XV of France granted permission to open a glassworks factory in the town.
Initially the factory began producing lead crystal glassware for the royal family and other wealthy nobles. Lead crystal is known for its clarity and brilliance, and it quickly became popular among the aristocracy gaining a reputation for producing high-quality crystal. Today, many Baccarat pieces are considered to be collectors' items.
