This charming and rare 19th-century cave à liqueur by the renowned cristallerie Baccarat gets a unique twist thanks to its oriental design. Taking the form of a palanquin, the doré bronze frame is fashioned in the style of bamboo shoots with root feet. Engraved and beveled glass forms each side, giving one a glimpse of the contents within. The cave à liqueur holds four decanters and 16 glasses, each of which is also intricately etched with a foliate motif. The inner tray can easily be lifted and removed to easily access the glassware inside.

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.
