A landmark creation

LOUIS XIII Le Salmanazar is a decanter at the summit of its art, unique in its mastery, size and stature. Conceived with meticulous savoir-faire and painstaking attention to detail, it united the skills and expert gestures of the finest craftsmen awarded with the highest distinctions. From blowers to cutters, each was intimately involved in hand-crafting this extraordinary piece. This landmark decanter called for over 20 master crystal-craftsmen to handle over 15 kilos of crystal, combining the skills of an elite body of artisans, Meilleurs Ouvriers de France and one of Baccarat's Chevaliers de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, who drew from the infinite sculptural possibilities brought by crystal. From the blaze of the furnace to the calm atelier, the dentelles and the fleur-de-lys stopper were molded by the master crystal artists, the medallion delicately curved to espouse the unique shape of the decanter. Each movement is exquisitely choreographed and executed to reach the pinnacle of crystal-making art. Never before had Baccarat conceived a LOUIS XIII masterpiece of the sheer magnitude of LOUIS XIII Le Salmanazar
