Vessière Cristaux Baccarat : House History
♦ J.VESSIÈRE, AFTER HIS WORLD TOUR, OPENED THE FIRST STORE AT BACCARAT :
Vessière cristaux Baccarat : House history, After travelling around the world presenting the manufacturing of Baccarat in numerous exhibitions, Mr. Justin Vessière, the founder, obtained with his son the highest reward for their work of engraving on crystals. Indeed, Mr. J. Vessière was a renamed engraver with Master Simon.
In 1882, Justin Vessière opens the first showroom shop in Baccarat, 26 rue des Ponts - Baccarat, where he sells the productions of the nearby crystal factory. It was located next to the church, completely destroyed during the bombings of 1914.
The following year, the Vessiere family settled on the other side of the Meurthe river, in the former central deposit making the corner with gable on the street of Frouard. The store has not moved since then, only the name of the street changed, becoming that of the Division-Leclerc after the Second World War, period during which the house was occupied by the Germans.
♦ A REAL MUSEUM :
In 1882 as in 2017, the showcase displays "Cristaux de Baccarat". But the store has evolved well in its design and conception. At the beginning, the Vessière house was the only depositary in France of the Baccarat crystal. Today, the House always offers Baccarat crystal, but they have expanded their range to other crystal brand and craft crystal. A showcase is thus devoted to Daum France, the other to Lalique France, the productions of the tailors' craftsmen shining with a thousand lights in its 300 m ² of surface.
From the outside, the house has also changed. Louis Vessière had built a second floor, the first overlooking the terrace surrounded by a grid sometimes attributed to Majorelle.
In 1971, Paule and Claude Denis had completely transformed the facade by affixing a sign with red lights very fashionable at the time. The current one is much more sober, running on the thirty linear meters that occupies the store.
Since this day, the house Vessière continues to select the crystal with the best experience. Vessière Cristaux Baccarat - after more than 130 years of activity - still an international ambassador of the city of the crystal and ensures a rigorous selection of high-quality crystals. The crystal of Baccarat is appreciated by collectors for its authenticity and its ambition to create innovative products for its precious customers.
