In 2013, Baccarat celebrates its famous Harcourt glass and honors the collection at the Plaza Athénée hotel. For the occasion, mixologist Thierry Hernandez, a veteran of Le Bar Du Plaza Athenee in Paris, imagined a “Baccarat Harcourt” cocktail.
The Harcourt collection, the oldest in the Baccarat archive, is reputed for its iconic design. Created in 1841, Harcourt stemware has been chosen by historical icons.
The Harcourt collection has also been a staple of French power, selected since the age of Napoleon III to its contemporary use in the Palais de l’Elysée.
The Harcourt glass is characterized by its architectural form: a stunning shape from the flat cut pattern of the bowl to the beveled geometry of the stem down to the hexagonal foot. Its craftsmanship is apparent from every angle of its regal and graceful form. Sipping from a Harcourt glass is taking part in the brand’s storied and elegant past.
