LOUIS XIII Cognac Debuts World’s Largest Baccarat Decanter for $450,000


LOUIS XIII Cognac has just debuted “Le Salmanazar,” a one-of-a-kind 9-liter crystal decanter by Baccarat and the only of its kind ever created. The collector’s item was meticulously conceived by more than 20 master crystal craftsmen and a master sculptor awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Now, the piece is available for sale for $450,000, presented by appointment at the Louis XIII Boutique in Beijing SKP. 

“Today LOUIS XIII creates Le Salmanazar, a decanter so rare, there is only one in the world,” offers Ludovic du Plessis, LOUIS XIII Global Executive Director. “A collector’s masterpiece, this exquisitely unique decanter stands as the ultimate symbol of LOUIS XIII’s history, tradition, and passion for rare craftsmanship.”

The exclusive piece (crafted from 15 kilos of crystal) will be available for purchase through a private viewing in Beijing for the next six months. The LOUIS XIII boutique will also work with clients to coordinate shipping back to the United States.
