A celebration of wildlife, Cecil is Baccarats first lion. A masterpiece of crystal designed by Allison Hawkes and created by the uniquely skilled artisans of our Manufacture.
Cecil the lion was illegally hunted in Zimbabwe in 2015. His name is now synonymous with the protection of this highly endangered species. The first piece will be auctioned at the Annabels club and funds raised donated to The Caring Family Foundation to work towards the reforestation and malnutrition of the Amazon.
Handcrafted, this sculpture required the expert hands of a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, a Meilleur Ouvrier de France and several crystal cutters to re-create the powerful majesty of the king of the savannah. The feline rests on a pedestal of Macassar ebony.
