This pitcher was the premier design of the "Memoire/Recontres" reproduction collection that showcased 23 of Baccarat's most extraordinary designs and the skill of their award winning craftsman. The piece was created using the same blueprints, molds AND tools from the 1820's that were used to create the original!
