MANUFACTURER = Baccarat France / Moser Karlsbad CLASSY, PRESTIGIOUS, TOP QUALITY CRYSTAL *Please note that the item being so scarce on the net, it was difficult to find info on it. There is a possibility that if not Baccarat, it could be a Cristalleries de Nancy Collector's set (just as prestigious glassmakers). Cristalleries de Nancy Ruby Overlay Cut Crystal Dresser Set = Cut in alternating pillars accented with start and printies. The stopper is in the shape most frequently seen in Nancy bottles and is cut to match. Cristalleries de Nancy was established in 1921, achieving the height of its success by winning a gold medal at the 1925 Art Deco Exhibition in Paris before going bankrupt in 1934. High-end perfume bottles were the company's specialty throughout its history. THIS IS THE ONLY SET I HAVE FOUND ON THE NET. Found a few bottles sold individually - not of this colour: One bottle retails at 600 approximately. No element of this exact model found. A complete set of this quality - a true rare opportunity - if not unique - to find such prestigious antiques. Carpe Diem! RARE OUTSTANDING! The pricing is quite low for items of such Antique value. ENJOY! FYI BACCARAT In response to a wealthy landowners request to make the best use of the natural resources of the infertile Baccarat region of France, King Louis XV created "Compagnie des Cristalleries de Baccarat" in 1765 by royal decree. The renowned company was the first French glassworks firm established to directly compete with imported Bohemian counterparts. The Baccarat firm also made a large contribution to the nation's economy by providing work for the local wood cutters and accelerating the region's recovery following the destruction of the Seven Years War. The creation of Baccarat generated revenue for the community while creating a product that was in high demand. Following the French Revolution, the Empire Wars and the fall of Napoleon, the economy in the region faltered. Over time, the Baccarat firm was sold numerous times as operating expenses tripled. The new owners sought to perfect the quality and craftsmanship of all the wares. Exceptional raw materials were imported from throughout the world, including America. Glassworkers underwent lengthy and meticulous training. The quest for perfection increased the quality and reputation of Baccarat glassware. Coupled with technological innovations and improved working conditions, the glassware firm was able to increase production, without sacrificing quality. The tremendous popularity of Baccarat glass ware was evident in the numerous top awards and honors the firm has had been given in the last two centuries. Baccarat has long been internationally recognized for their magnificent creations. Most notably, at the 1823 Exposition Nationale in Paris, where they received international praise and acclaim from all in attendance. Even Louis XVIII, admired and appreciated the quality of craftsmanship and modest prices of the wares. The popularity of Baccarat flourished and became vogue among European royalty and elite. During the mid-19th century Baccarat chandeliers and tableware were favored by European royalty, with the Russian aristocracy proving to be some of their most loyal clientele. At one point, one-third of Baccarat's workforce (over 2,000 employees), were assigned solely to fulfill the orders for the Russian court. In addition to the extravagant pieces, Baccarat created scores of stemware for the Russian market. A custom initiated by the first tsars mandated that no one should drink from a glass touched by their own lips, and many grand dukes and nobleman followed suit. Consequently, many a Baccarat crystal goblet was immediately smashed after only a single use! The international acclaim, the royal patronage and the quantity and quality of the awards won at expositions throughout Paris and Europe have garnered a magnificent reputation for the French firm. Prized for its clarity, detail and beauty of form, Baccarat crystal is the perfect accompaniment to any dinner service. MOSER KARLSBAD Moser Glassworks was founded by Ludwig Moser Sons in Carlsbad, Austria, in 1857. During the first two decades of business the company was involved in engraving and polishing glass blanks produced at other glassworks. Moser soon built his own factory and began producing high quality cut and decorated glassware. This luxury glassware was commissioned by monarchs, maharajahs and popes. At first the company produced only clear glass products but at the beginning of the 20th century they began to add coloured glass to their product lines. The company became famous for their engraving, carving, guilting and painting techniques. Later, they also became known for their development of a hard, sparkling, cut crystal glass that did not require lead in the production.

He attained a large range of achievements due to his art craft mastery and uncommon business talent so he established the base of later renown of Moser crystal. The fame and rarity of Moser crystal products were generally spread when Ludwig Moser was appointed a royal purveyor of Emperor Franz Joseph I (1878), Persian Shah Musaffereddin (1901) and King of England Eduard VII (1908). In 1892 Ludwig Moser built his own glassworks and concentrated on a production of ecological pure lead-free crystal which has been melted till these days.

Only shortly after opening his glassworks, he became a supplier for the imperial court.

Moser is also popular with celebrities, who set the trend in the luxurious lifestyles.

CRISTALLERIES DE NANCY At the end of the war 14-18, Daum and Gallé remain the only two glassworks in Nancy. That of Emile Gallé, which his widow took over until April 1914, more or less led by his son Paul Perdrizet. Since they no longer benefit from the creative genius of Emile Gallé, art workshops live on their past. Despite the presence of Daum and Gallé glass, some see the possibility of gains in a market reclaim and demand growth. So few men from Nancy business meet (Bayet, Krug, Simon, Jacquemin, Perdizet) to create in 1920, the Crystal Nancy. It will move in front of Daum at 88 rue Faubourg Saint Georges in Nancy. She recruited nearly 600 people including Nancy talented Auguste Houillon as artistic director. It will specialize in the manufacture of crystal bottles built for luxury perfume because the needs in France and abroad (especially in America) are considerable. January 27, 1921, the production begins. The commercial catalog was impressive for its variety. You could find many glassware, crystal, clear or double color, handmade, but also more than 25 vases, toilet fittings. Floral designs, Art Deco or géométrisants rubbed parts with conventional sizes ribbed flat or hollow, acid etched, embossed, and the wheel. Aristide Colotte worked there a year to model projects. Original artistic creations, numbered were produced with Lorraine painter Michel Colle (1872-1949). She was the first victim of the glass industry in Lorraine during the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Its bankruptcy was declared in 1931 and its liquidation was completed in 1935. DAUM - CRISTALLERIES DE NANCY Daum was started in Nancy, France, in 1875 by Jean Daum. His sons, Auguste Daum and Antonin Daum, oversaw most of the production of Daum Nancy fine glass, cameo, and enameled glass, which was made from the 1890’s into the early 20th century. The company is still working today under the name Cristalleries de Nancy.
