Catalogue Note

Decoration of this type was exhibited for the first time by Cristallerie de Baccarat in 1867 at the Paris Exposition Universelle, when an acid-blue punch service was included on their stand. The service is now in the collection of the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, illustrated by Jane Shadel Spillman, Glass from the World’s Fairs – 1851-1904, Corning Museum of Glass, exh. cat., 1986, p. 23, fig. 8. It is particularly rare to find coolers in pink, a near pair of coolers in blue was offered at Sotheby's Olympia, 17th December 2003, lot 64.
