Baccarat signed chandelier. Glass and gilt bronze. 19th century.
Gilt bronze and transparent glass chandelier with eight lights. The upper part has a series of curved sticks from which hang some glass beads in various shapes (flower, tear). The central axis of the chandelier (made in metal and covered in glass with abundant curves) has a central piece in bronze and glass beads (very often seen in french chandeliers from around the middle of the 19th century and in Louis XVI style). From all the elements of the piece hang a large number of glass beads of various shapes (circular, flowers, tears, oval, etc.).
The Société Baccarat (which continues to manufacture luxury glassware in this French town) began as a glass workshop founded by Louis-Joseph de Laval-Montmorency, with the permission of Louis XV of France, in 1764. They received the first official order from the Royalty in 1823, giving rise to a huge number of petitions addressed to members of European royal families, nobility, heads of state, etc. Towards 1860, the company began to sign its products with a registered trademark, usually recorded in the base of the article, although it was also common for other broncists to use Baccarat glass for its fame and quality.
