Translated into crystal by Marcel Wanders for Baccarat, the game of kings is transformed into a genuine collectors item. The battlefield unfolds on a chessboard in black and white inlaid marble. The pieces take the shape of a drop of crystal that catches every reflection of light. Marcel Wanders has restyled each piece with humor and artistry, from the mane of the knights steed to the bishops miter and the hem of his gown. 6 figurines with contemporary style, made by lost wax technique due to the complex design of each silhouette. 16 clear crystal pieces and 16 black crystal pieces.
Each game is numbered under the clear crystal king figurine with Baccarat signature (both are gilded). Under all other pieces there is the "B" engraving. Crowns of kings and queens are gilded with liquid gold applied by hand. Queens can also be used as a very small bud vase.

Baccarat Crystal has, from the beginning, affixed its signature on strong works illustrating all the facets of artistic craftsmanship and covering a vast repertoire of inspiration.

In 1764 King Louis XV of France gave Bishop Montmorency-Laval of Metz permission to found a glassworks in the village of Baccarat located in Lorraine in eastern France.

The creations of great artists inspired by the magic of crystal are all magnificent stones brought together into building the Art de Vivre collection.

This is how Baccarat perpetuates the great French tradition of a cosmopolitan art of living. Envisioned by Philippe Starck, the Baccarat House in Paris, home to the brand's headquarters, is a meeting place for its most beautiful creations and one of its most beautiful manifestations.
