A (Baccarat) Chandelier Moment, NYC

Plaza Hotel, New York, NY
This past Summer, Billy and I found ourselves in the great city of New York, and I snapped this amazing, huge, antique Baccarat chandelier...do you think anything could be more impressive, or beautiful?  Opulent and understated at the same time.  DF ***** (and check this out, the Baccarat Hotel, via Damsel in Dior) here !

In 1764 King Louis XV of France gave permission to found a glassworks in the town of Baccarat in the Lorraine region in eastern France to Prince Bishop Cardinal Louis-Joseph de Laval-Montmorency (1710-1802). Production consisted of window panes, mirrors and stemware until 1816 when the first crystal oven went into operation. By that time over 3000 workers were employed at the site.[3]

    Our friend and colleague, Mr. Carleton Varney, told us that Ivana Trump procured this chandelier, and he says it is not by Baccarat. DF
