Glossary Words

Baccarat

French glass manufacturer founded in 1764 during the reign of Louis XV. Centred in Paris, they made fabulous chandeliers and table glass for royalty, and are still producing high quality glassware today.

Second Empire

Refers to the reign of Napoleon III (1850-70) which had more flamboyant styles than 'Empire', with more curlicues. The Empress Eugénie revived the Louis XVI style, together with an eclectic mix of sources. Many of our gilt-and-glass French chandeliers are Second Empire.
