Created in 1841, the Harcourt Empire is the oldest in the Baccarat archive and is reputed for its iconic design.
The Harcourt Empire champagne flute shares the same structural outline as the Harcourt champagne flute, but adorned with exquisite golden embellishment. The flat cut pattern of the bowl has golden decorative shapes applied with a light hand, and a gilded ring around the rim. The geometric beveled stem remains classical, while the hexagonal foot is gold-trimmed around its perimeter. The Harcourt Empire collection, sparkling lucid crystal complemented by graceful gold, also includes a wine glass and highball. Baccarat's Rivoli stemware collection has gilded features as well.
