"Find the best antique and vintage collector books and price guides on antiques and collectibles that appraisers and dealers use plus expert collecting book reviews at Collectics Antique Collector Bookstore." World Antiques Weekly

Ever since its establishment in 1765, the French glassworks at Baccarat has produced some of the world's most perfect and beautiful crystal ware. This lavishly illustrated volume Baccarat briskly covers the entire history of the Baccarat glass factory, including the development of their ingenious and highly successful technical processes and the company's once revolutionary "paternalistic" management style. Early drawings, engravings, and photographs show the crystal works, carefully stocked warehouse, and product designs. But soon text and illustrations give way to page after page of color photographs (279 in all) of Baccarat masterpieces, which, in turn, create an overview of the trends and fashions of crystal tableware and other decorative objects over the centuries. From opulence to elegance, intricacy to simplicity, these crystal objects epitomize luxury. Cut crystal tables and chandeliers of bewildering complexity, goblets and glasses of perfect clarity, elaborate decanters, bottles, paperweights, and vases all display glass craftsmanship at its finest. Their surfaces are etched, engraved, cut, gilded, embossed, and polished in the floral, figurative, and geometric patterns in vogue during each era. What's always in style is quality, and that's been Baccarat's speciality. A plum for decorative arts collections.
