Product Description

AMBER EYE VOTIVES, SET OF 2 BACCARAT :

AMBER EYE VOTIVES, SET OF 2 BACCARAT, The extraordinary craftsmanship—horizontal bevel cuts on the outside and vertical bevel cuts on the inside produces a brilliant optical effect, rendered all the more intricate in the light. The Eye Vase maximizes the unpredictability of perception, evoking delight and surprise about what the eye can discern with shifts in luminosity. The tiers gently ripple, thus imbuing a sense of movement, a rippling continuum. The gleaming symmetry plays on perspective, as the refractions of light create great depth throughout the layers. The contours conjure a Clear crystal cyclone, magnetically pulling you in like a vortex. The entrancing attributes of the Eye vase are also characteristic of the Baccarat Clear crystal Eye votive.


♦ BACCARAT 2017 :

The « Gold Wave » Products embody a current and future trend. In decoration, trend notebooks are formal: warm and precious colors are and will be very present, ranging from amber to fold, through copper and bronze.

Baccarat translates this tendency in crystal by a camaïeu of yellow and gold allowing different sets of light. Some crystal clear products are gilded with 20 carat liquid gold (833/1000) hand-made by brush, others are lacquered in amber or with a metallized gold. These colors are bright and warm: they give energy to the products and stimulate the look.


♦ THE FIRST FRENCH CRYSTAL GLASSWORKS :

On 16 October 1764, Louis XV authorized the creation of what would become the prestigious Baccarat crystal works. Having convinced the king, there remained the question of finding a manufacturing site. The choice fell on Baccarat, a village already known for its drapers. It had space, a willing workforce, but also a river, the Meurthe, which would soon be running through the glassworks and delivering a regular supply of timber floated from upstream. Everything was in place. In 1766, an entire range of glass, mirrors and "Bohemia-style" glassware was produced in the furnaces. While the freshly created enterprise paid little heed to the quality of its production at the time (no crystal strictly speaking!), it prospered nonetheless. But the Revolution and the wars that came in its wake deprived Baccarat of export markets in Europe. With its raw materials requisitioned and the young men making up its workforce being sent to the front, the firm went bankrupt. The factory was bought and sold several times, scraping by until 1816.

It rose from the ashes on this date as a result of Louis XVIII granting Aimé-Gabriel d'Artigues, the owner of the Vonêche crystal works in Belgium, an exemption from customs duties, provided he established a crystal manufacture in France. D'Artigues chose Baccarat where he took over the Sainte-Anne glassworks, converting it into a crystal glassworks.
