This charming Napoleon III-style cave à liqueur is crafted of stunning crystal and doré bronze by the renowned firm Baccarat. Fashioned in the ancient Greco-Roman style with precisely cut oblong panels, the footed case includes a detailed finial, medallion and grapevine latch. The cave à liqueur holds four decanters and 16 glasses, each of which features gilded detailing.

An object of practical use as well as beauty, the case opens by releasing the latch and lifting the lid. The cave à liqueur is the perfect home for four decanters crafted of Baccarat crystal, which boast the superior artistry for which the firm is renowned. Since the firm was established in 1764, Baccarat has garnered world acclaim for their phenomenal creations and still remains the ultimate crystal of the Continent.

Established by the Royal Decree of Louis XV in 1765, Baccarat has consistently produced glass and crystal works that have revolutionized and dazzled the industry. From the beginning, the company received numerous royal commissions from French nobility and aristocrats across Europe, most notably Tsar Nicolas of Russia, Louis XV, Louis XVI and Napoleon. They won their first gold medal at the 1855 International Exhibition and have continued to carry off prizes at international exhibitions since. Today, antique works by this prestigious company are exceedingly rare, especially magnificent examples such as this.
