There is no more elegant way to serve beverages than from a glass carafe. Perfectly suited to complement stemware and drinking glasses, these crystal-clear containers are as much of an artistic expression as they are pitchers.
Villeroy & Boch, The Cellar, Waterford and Mikasa offer several lines of glassware and barware to complete any home bar or serving area. Go traditional with the elegantly etched Waterford crystal carafes that have become part of one of the world’s most recognized crystal patterns. The classic diamond etching gives this serveware set plenty of texture, and the carafe is a great addition to the matching collection that includes a pitcher, sugar and creamer, salt and pepper shakers and footed bowls.
When it comes to throwing a party at home, beverages need to be chilled before and during serving. This is where an innovative glass carafe with built-in chiller comes in. Sleek and tall with a modern silhouette, this mouth-blown carafe is designed with an ice chamber inside, allowing guests to pour drinks without the ice getting in the way. It comes complete with an airtight glass stopper that keeps the ice in place, while the compartment ensures that no water leaks into the beverage as the ice melts.
Certain carafes are artfully designed with handles, drawing on the classic glass pitcher design. Another contemporary design is a flared bottom that gives way to a long and narrow top, making it easier to handle the carafe and pour with one hand. While most of these carafes are set aside to be used alongside fine china and holiday tablecloths, serving beverages in beautiful glass allows you to treat every meal as a special occasion. These pieces are durable and most are dishwasher safe, making them appropriate for everyday use.
