Champagne for a Baccarat Birthday

Champagne for a Baccarat Birthday

To celebrate the 170th birthday of Baccarat’s superstar Harcourt crystal pattern, designer Philippe Starck and his artist daughter Ara collaborated on a champagne tribute. Instead of a board, their game of jeu de dames, or checkers, is played on Ara’s painted silk scarf with Harcourt champagne flutes as pieces—with clear playing against Starck’s signature black.

The numbered but unlimited edition has four flutes and a scarf; the limited edition comes with six clear and six black signed flutes with a signed silk square. Sounds like fun, especially if the glasses are kept filled.
