Hello,I would love to help you with this. I will need a photo of the piece and of any marks. You can do that by using the paper clip icon in the text box.

When you do get access to photos, you can email them to *****@******.*** and put 'forCustomerin antiques' in the subject line so that they will get forwarded to me. In the meantime, I will do preliminary research while I wait for pictures.

In order to keep you from having to take pictures, I will add a photo of what I think you have and you can verify. The Spiral Sculpture by Baccarat was made in limited edition of 100. Your piece will have the number on the bottom of what number it is of the 100 made. For example, 26/100 would mean yours is number 26 in a run of 100 made. These pieces have a value of 775.00-900.00.
