    Baccarat ETERNAL LIGHTS: Form of Joy

    Baccarat was established in 1764, when Louis XV issued a royal warrant to found a glass-making factory in the village of Baccarat in northeastern France. Ever since, Baccarat is known for its exquisitely crafted crystal and glassware, attracting international clients including royalty and celebrities. It produced crystal chandeliers for the first time in 1824.

    At Yebisu Garden Place, a sumptuous Baccarat chandelier, one of its largest in the world, will be displayed in a custom-made plexiglass box and lit for the season.
