Cristal du Creusot or the beginning of the production of Baccarat, a rare piece. To see some interesting details about the factory: Cristalleries du Creusot, was founded by Queen Marie Antoinette in 1787. The presence of coal was the triggering factor, but there was also close sand, lead, clay for the manufacture of refractories, and sandstone for making the grinding wheels for the size of the crystal. By 1788, La Cristallerie was competing with English crystal works. After the revolution, she lost her prestigious clients and had to make ordinary glass. Father Chapet directed the glassworks until 1812. He developed the leaded optical glass, embedded in the glass portraits, religious subjects ... The company reached its peak in 1828. Successive feuds and competition from Baccarat brought the Cristallerie to cease its activities in 1832. The techniques of manufacture were taken again by the Crystal factory of Baccarat. see the blog of the Eco Museum: (http://www.creusot.net/creusot/parc_verrerie/chateau.htm)
