Hello all,
I need some advise about a piece I inherited years ago. It is a Baccarat pitcher, called the King Charles. It is a numbered museum piece, ten years ago I was in New York and visited the Baccarat store where they had one in stock. It was priced at around $8,000.00, and I'm having a hard time finding the current value as I'm considering selling it. Can anyone direct me to a sorce of information or a reputable dealer?
Thank you very much.

the aftermarket for Baccarat is very difficult - just imagine what sort of glass you could buy for that amount of money! If it is indeed a top piece, I suggest you contact Baccarat itself (the ever so friendly people at the Baccarat museum in Paris, for instance) and ask for suggestions.
