Baccarat Paperweights: Baccarat began to produce lead crystal paperweights in the 1840s. Their work is classic and at the very pinnacle of art-glass perfection. They ceased production of paperweights in the in the 19th Century. Baccarat resumed making paperweights in the early 20th Century and continued until a few years ago.The Baccarat Glass Factory in Alsace-Lorraine, France was one of the first and one of the best glass houses to make paperweights. Consider the type of effort this required they needed to be near a forest because theyneeded trees to cut for fuel to make the glass and keep it molten; they needed to be near a good source of clean sand for the glass; and they needed to experiment with various minerals to make the colors of the glass. At the time their first paperweights were made, the factory was in France. After the Franco-Prussian War, it became Germany (1871) and stayed that way until after World War I (1918) when is went back to France. It was occupied again by Germany from 1940 -1944 in World War II. The techniques necessary for works such as these took many years to perfect. The late 1960s to early 1970s were the Dreamland of modern Baccaratas dreamy as were the times. An incredible pulse of experimentation and creativity ran through the Baccarat glassworks, creating unique and short run pieces, some of the most attractive and natural millefiori closepacks ever made, and a wide range of fascinating flower forms its a collectors dream.
As years progressed, the fruits of these years culminated in what is arguably the most stunning production ever within the world of glass art.
