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. 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. 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.
THE MOUNTINGS: French hardware is usually marked "Breveté , "Déposé" , "Modèle Déposé", or "Bte. SGDG". People often mistake these markings for manufacturer's marks but in reality: Breveté means " Patented" // Depose means " registered" // Marque de Fabrique: this word means trade mark. // Marque déposée: trademark // Modèle Depose: Registered Design // Bté. SGDG: means " patented." It is shortened from the phrase Breveté Sans Garantie du Gouvernement which means " Patented without State Guarantee."
THEOPHILUS-MARTIN: Theophilus Martin was a silversmith from France operating around 1904 and possibly up until around 1920. He designed and manufactured high quality silverplated and gilded base metal mountings used on pump atomizers. His mark is "TM" with an image of a piston pump style atomizer. One can find Martin mounts on luxurious art glass bottles by Galle, Daum Nancy and possibly Baccarat and Saint-Louis. His chased designs on the mountings contribute much of the aesthetic appeal of these already valuable crystal treasures. Possibly the founder of the jewelry company T. Martin & Co, who worked out of France and London around 1900-1930, most famous for their watches.
