Georges Chevalier (1894-1987)
After graduating from the National College of Decorative arts in 1913, Georges Chevalier began working with Baccarat in
1916. In 1925, during the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, Chevalier designed not only
Baccarat crystal models, but also the inside and outside of the Baccarat Christofle pavilion. He worked for an impressively
long period with Baccarat in many different areas. Whether glass sets, plates, goblets, animal sculptures, perfume bottles
or jewellery, not a single field escaped the touch of this man with a passion for Baccarat crystal. Chevalier continued
untiringly to create for Baccarat right up till the 1970s, adding considerably to the repertoire of shapes and decorations.
His work took Baccarat into the modernity of the 20th century, but at the same time kept to the “traditional heritage” of
the crystal factory.
