[DEPARTURES 100] The Christmas collection is usually something noteworthy from French crystal maestros Baccarat, but this year is particularly pertinent as the brand celebrates its 250th anniversary.

Warm flashes of the House signature colour underscore their offerings this year, subtly catching the eye in the suitably grandiose 84-light Zénith chandelier. More modest, dimensionally, are the pieces of the storied Harcourt series. Originally a ceremonial chalice ordered by King Louis Philippe of France in 1841, its diamond-like cut has endured for the better part of two centuries, inspiring countless imitators.
