♦ BACCARAT :

At the end of the Seven Years' War (1756-1763), Baccarat is a small village among others in Lorraine. Located on the side of the Vosges, about fifty kilometers from Nancy, the region survives with difficulty. Indeed, ruined by wars, its economic situation is bogged down. The forests are no longer exploited and the population, mainly composed of loggers, is reduced to a state of misery.

It was then that a prelate, Louis de Montmorency-Laval, bishop of Metz, decided with the authorization of the King of France, Louis XV to found a glassworks to create work to the idle inhabitants. In 1764, the "Verrerie Sainte-Anne" was created in Baccarat.

The company is flourishing until 1789. However, the French Revolution and the wars of Empire will affect the factory. Thus, it will be necessary to wait for its redemption in 1816 by a crystal manufacturer, Aimé-Gabriel d'Artigues, so that his destiny will change.

Then, the glassworks is transformed into a crystal factory with the authorization of Louis XVIII and that the first crystal oven is lit. In 1823, the company became a limited company under the name "Compagnie des Cristalleries de Baccarat".

In 1841, the arrival of the engineer François Eugène de Fontenay brings profound changes. It is to him that we owe, especially, from 1845, the manufacture of the first "Millefiori".

A major international luxury brand, Baccarat is well known around the world for its prestigious glass services. Indeed, the most famous is "Harcourt". In 1991, she launched the creation of a crystal jewelry line. The many gold medals and awards received in the various world exhibitions testify to the quality of its know-how.
