Web Description: 
This large punch set bearing a scene of drinking and revelry was displayed at the 1867 Exposition Universelle in Paris. Its imagery was created, using the acid-etching technique, to produce relief and shading of the motifs. Baccarat was awarded a grand prize at the Exposition, and was noted as having the most renowned of the French displays.
