From the Furnace of the Tsar produced specifically for the Russian court, to the Maharaja who tested the strength of his palace ceiling by hanging an elephant before placing a chandelier, the Baccarat manufacture is well known for its ability to create unique experiences—a characteristic also found at the Baccarat Hotel.
