This is a superb late 1800s to earliest 1900s Empire Revival centerpiece or plant/flowers vase by Baccarat, one of the finest names in French crystal and glassware. The heavy solid brilliant item is fitted in a casement of dore bronze with French Empire motifs and grand arched handles on each side. Add a round flower frog and set your most beautiful bouquet into this one easily, or use it as a service item at table. Stunningly beautiful if you just display it within a lighted vitrine, frankly. Look at the fine detail. These are always of high appeal, and are unsigned but signature Baccarat.
Very good to excellent condition, not a chip nor crack, and no dents or breaks in that dore bronze. It has some tarnish in recesses, and if you wish to remove it, a brass polish will easily do the trick, return it to high brilliant gold finish. But I'm out of polish and want to get this one up and listed. Superb old thing, isn't it. Measurements are noted on our images.
