Tsar Crystal Sets by Baccarat

Tsar Crystal Sets by Baccarat

Wow. Since we've been looking for a set of champagne flutes for an upcoming gift (thanks for all of the suggestions!), we spotted these intensely ornate green champagne goblets from Baccarat.

Presumably well beyond our price range, the style, colors, and intricate cut of this part of the "Tsar" collection caught our attention (they also come in blue and pink).

Not the simple, classic look we are going for, but these beauties would be quite the conversation starters. A bit about Baccarat Crystal:

Since it was established in 1764, Baccarat has continued expanding its influence, inspired in roots stemming from an ingenious handcrafted work of the highest quality, throughout the world.

The creations of Georges Chevalier, Van day Truex, Salvador Dalí, Roberto Sambonet, Andrée Putman, Christian Tortu, César, Marcial Berro, and Ettore Sottsass -- all of them great artists inspired by the magic of crystal – are all magnificent stones brought together into building the Art de Vivre collection.

Also a member of the Tsar family: this pink crystal glass (also in blue or green).

What do you think? Can you envision living with either of these?
