The splendor of Baccarat crystal is on full display in this stunning Napoléon III-period cavé à liqueur. Its circular form is etched with a delicate grapevine motif, while exquisite doré bronze frames the entire piece. Lift the lid and peek inside to reveal four etched crystal liqueur decanters and 16 etched cordial glasses that are held in place on a mirrored platform by a removable carrying stand of doré bronze. An objet d'art of practical use as well as beauty, it is clear to see why Baccarat has garnered such extensive world acclaim for their phenomenal creations and 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. Revolution, war and economic crises have brought the firm to the brink of bankruptcy several times over the past 200 years, but Baccarat has managed to pull through each time. 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 cavé à liqueur.
