Baccarat

In the early 1950s, Baccarat, the traditional French glasshouse, decided to re-introduce paperweights into its production range. The secrets of the company’s fine millefiori and lampworking techniques, however, had long since been forgotten. A gradual learning process followed. By the late 50s the company was again producing millefiori weights - mainly concentrics and zodiac closepacks - while the first lampwork examples only appeared in the late 60s. That was when Baccarat introduced a date cane plus an acid-etched insignia on the base. Later a “B” was added to the date cane. In the 1970s, an acid-etched date and edition number joined the insignia on the base. In 2002 the company decided paperweight production was no longer viable and it was phased out.
