Product description:The clear crystal Spirit vase is a reinterpretation of the Brigitte vase, designed for Baccarat by Nicolas Triboulot during the 1960s. The Spirit vase is crafted using the same techniques that are used to make Baccarat multifaceted and exquisite eye vase and Wave vase. The intricacy of the pattern, etched from the interior of the vase outward, creates a raised and sharply geometrical surface. As a result of this incredible three-dimensional depth of form, the exterior beautifully refracts the light. The vase zigzagged edge is the finishing touch, trimming the vase symmetry with an appealing spikiness. The overall form, which gradually sprouts outward, resembles a sparkling badminton shuttlecock. The thick base and broad open neck make the vase an ideal form for large bouquets.
Baccarat Crystal has, from the beginning, affixed its signature on strong works illustrating all the facets of artistic craftsmanship and covering a vast repertoire of inspiration.
In 1764 King Louis XV of France gave Bishop Montmorency-Laval of Metz permission to found a glassworks in the village of Baccarat located in Lorraine in eastern France.
The creations of great artists inspired by the magic of crystal are all magnificent stones brought together into building the Art de Vivre collection.
This is how Baccarat perpetuates the great French tradition of a cosmopolitan art of living. Envisioned by Philippe Starck, the Baccarat House in Paris, home to the brand's headquarters, is a meeting place for its most beautiful creations and one of its most beautiful manifestations.
