Product description:The Empire highball glass revisits the Harcourt regal architectural form. The Harcourt collection, created in 1841, is the oldest in the Baccarat archive and reputed for its iconic design. The Empire highball glass shares the same structural outline as the Harcourt highball glass, but adorned with exquisite golden embellishment. Golden decorative shapes are applied with a light hand to the flat cut pattern of the glass, and the lip and base of the tumbler are embellished with a gilded trim. The Empire collection, a showcase of sparkling lucid crystal complemented by graceful gold, also includes a wine glass, an old-fashioned tumbler and champagne flute. Baccarat Rivoli stemware collection has gilded features as well.
