Baccarat first began marking its work with a registered mark in 1860. The mark was a label affixed to the bottom of the work. In the period 1846-1849 Baccarat signed some of their high quality glass paperweights with the letter B and the year date in a composite cane. A special paperweight dated 1853 was found under the cornerstone of a bomb damaged church in Baccarat when construction recommenced after World War 2.
Strong growth continued in Asia for Baccarat.
One of the strongest production areas for Baccarat was perfume bottles, and by 1907 production was over 4000 bottles per day.
A retrospective was held in 1964 at the Louvre Museum to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the crystal works.
In 1993 Baccarat began making jewelry and in 1997 the company expanded into perfume.
