As the leading crystal glass manufacturer, Baccarat creates some of the most prized fine crystals in the world, especially since the storied French company is known for exquisite glasswork that dates all the way back to the 1700s. That legacy continues even today though, as the luxury brand presents their latest collection — one with pop culture icon Pikachu, now with a dazzling gleam.
This collaboration with Pokémon features three multi-faceted creations that honour everyone’s favourite electric mouse — a very limited edition $35,280 Pikachu Fragment, of which there are only 25 pieces in the world; as well as relatively more affordable pieces of a Pikachu figurine and Poké Ball for fans and collectors around the world. Here’s a look at all of them:
With Pikachu at the heart of the collection, Baccarat reached out to Japanese artist Hiroshi Fujiwara for his vision of the pocket monster, which is now faithfully recreated in crystal form, complete with sculpted facets that glimmer brilliantly in the light. The Pikachu Fragment represents the unique know-how of Baccarat artisans, with its multi-dimensional cuts and an engraving of the “electric” logo of Pikachu’s iconic tail. There is a rather hefty price tag attached to this though — the piece retails at $35,280, while there are only 25 pieces available worldwide. Only 1 piece is available here in Singapore!
PIKACHU MEDIUM & POKE BALL
For more casual fans, if you’re like to splurge on a crystal piece that is, there’s a medium-sized Pikachu and Poké Ball that’s still quite the catch. The collector’s item features the endearing Pikachu with its arms wide open and its tail peeking out from behind, while the Poké Ball is dressed in a little bit of gold mesh, ideal as a paperweight or luxe display piece. The Pikachu crystal retails at $610 and the Poké Ball, at $560.
