France gave us some of the greatest glass designers and manufacturers of the 20th century.  Whether it be the cameo glass of the beginning of the century from Gallé or the Daum brothers, the pressed glass of Lalique or Sabino, or the brilliantly clear crystal glass of Baccarat and Christofle, French glass has always been for the discerning, cultured collector.  The vase on the right is a large Ginko crystal vase made by Baccarat with a simplicity that is dramatically enhanced in sunlight.
