TheAntiqueTrade.co.uk Glossary of Antique Terms B

Baccarat Paperweight - (Glass) Baccarat Paperweights have been produced in Baccarat, France since 1816. The technique that the Venusians and Bohemians developed of embedding millefiori canes into the crystal glass was taken over by the Baccarat factory in the 1840s and their lead crystal glass paperweights with millefiori designs surpass anything produced in that period from Bohemia or Venice. The technique of embedding cameo sulphides in paperweights, was raised to a fine art by Baccarat in the early 19th century, both of these techniques of making paperweights are still in use today.
