This glass chess set treads a fine line between luxury and function. Baccarat created a fine line of glassware with this new luxurious glass chess set.

Baccarat has been around a long time, 250 years to be exact and in light of that, it created this beautiful chess set to commemorate its anniversary. This chess set is based upon a classic Baccarat icon -- the harcourt design -- and all pieces are hand crafted. It's no exaggeration to say that these pieces may be too nice to actually play with.

Each piece is crafted with a particular design in mind as well such as the King being modeled after the King's crown and the Queen being shaped after the hem of her own robe. The pieces come in a clear glass or midnight blue tone.
