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.
