The Baccarat legend continues with a new exhibition in the exceptional setting of the Maison Baccarat’s Gallery-Museum. Visitors will discover, or re-discover, a selection of masterpieces shown at the “Baccarat, the legend of crystal” exhibition recently held at the Petit Palais, as well as a number of pieces that have never been shown to the general public.

Among them are the Horloge Soleil created by Georges Chevalier, which was displayed in the window of the first Baccarat boutique in the United States in 1948. This outstanding piece was chosen by Arthur Miller to decorate the apartment he shared with his wife Marilyn Monroe in Manhattan.

For the first time, Baccarat will also be displaying the Célimène vase offered to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1972 and elements for chandeliers in turquoise crystal, a colour created especially for a commission from the Shah of Persia.

Bringing heritage and modernity together, the exhibition also displays archive documents and some of the sources of inspiration behind Baccarat’s timeless and legendary collections.
