About The Artist:

This exceptionally large Baccarat twelve-light chandelier is in the hard-to-find "Bambou Tors" or Twisted Bamboo pattern. Baccarat was founded in Lorraine, France, in the 18th century by order of Louis XV and became one of the most famous glass factories in the world. In 1823, Baccarat received the first of many national awards and was commissioned by Louis XVIII to produce a glass table service for the Tuileries Palace, a royal and imperial palace located on the right bank of the River Seine. Thus began a long history of Royal patronage.

Baccarat opened its first retail shop in 1832 in Paris. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, orders poured in from emperors, sultans and wealthy individuals from all over the world, especially from Russia, and many Baccarat works can be seen in the palace of St. Petersburg as well as in many prominent international museums.

From October 2014 to January 2015, the Petit Palais held a landmark retrospective of Baccarat's works made during its 250-year history. Exhibited were over 500 items from Baccarat's own collection as well as from museums all over the world. In 2005, Starwood Capital Group purchased Baccarat and in 2015 opened a 50-story glass tower furnished with exquisite creations from the Baccarat factory in the tony Midtown neighborhood of New York City, across the street from the Museum of Modern Art.

This chandelier was purchased in 1977 by the current owners directly from the Paris Baccarat showroom and brought back in a private jet to adorn their capacious dining room and has remained there ever since.
