Baccarat is the first glassworks in France to create colored crystal, for which the company received a gold medal at the National Exhibition of Industrial Products. Baccarat will remain a leader in this art, particularly for the invention of the famous gold ruby red and opaline colors.
Baccarat’s signature is applied systematically to every product; the paper label is replaced by an acid-etched trademark. In 1990, a laser is used to apply the Baccarat logo (all Baccarat signatures are now sand engraved). Later, jewelry would be marked with a single logo, and starting in 1997, all chandeliers carry a red crystal pampille.
