Baccarat Crystal is a manufacturer of fine crystal glassware located in Baccarat, France. The company owns two museums: the Musée Baccarat in Baccarat, Meurthe-et-Moselle and the Galerie-Musée Baccarat, on the Place des États-Unis in Paris.
In 1764 King Louis XV of France gave permission to found a glassworks in the town of Baccarat in the Lorraine region in eastern France to Prince Bishop Cardinal Louis-Joseph de Laval-Montmorency (1761-1802). Production consisted of window panes, mirrors and stemware until 1816 when the first crystal oven went into operation. By that time over 3000 workers were employed at the site.
Baccarat created an American subsidiary in 1948 in New York City. As of 2010 there are stores in Chicago; Costa Mesa; Houston; New York; San Francisco; Palm Desert, California; and Las Vegas.
A retrospective was held in 1964 at the Louvre Museum to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the crystal works.
In 1993, Baccarat began making jewelry and in 1997 the company expanded into perfume.
In 2003, Baccarat relocated to 11, place des Etats-Unis in Paris.
