CRYSTAL CHANDELIERS – BACCARAT – LALIQUE CHANDELIERS, Whether pear-shaped, octagonal, pendant, spiked, prism or bell-shaped, crystals’ refractive qualities are a perfect foil for candlelight.

Baccarat began developing its first chandeliers as long ago as 1824, and began showing them in 1827 at the Exposition Nationale des Produits de l’Industrie Française. Shortly thereafter, after working in partnership with bronzesmiths who assembled structures in gilt bronze and crystal, the Crystalworks opened its own bronze workshop and began to manufacture complete chandeliers both in bronze and crystal and entirely in hand-cut crystal. The subsequent series of Expositions Universelles, or World’s Fairs, allowed Baccarat to establish its international supremacy in the lighting sphere.
