LOUIS XIII Launches The Time Collection, Starting with THE ORIGIN – 1874
By SENATUS Magazine | 19 September 2017

LOUIS XIII presents The Time Collection: a series of special limited editions showcasing milestones in the history of LOUIS XIII. Each is an invitation to take a journey which few have the honor of experiencing.

The Time Collection recounts the LOUIS XIII journey. It is a voyage through many lands and times, a tale of legends, celebrities and great statesmen.

Within this lineup is THE ORIGIN – 1874 which commemorates the creation of LOUIS XIII. The original decanter was not quite the one the world has come to know. It had spikes, known as dentelles in French, but instead of the ten spikes that are featured today, it had thirteen, just like the original metal flask. It was stamped with royal fleur-de-lys on its front and was nestled in straw in a wicker basket. Finally, the stopper was not the fleur-de-lys we know today, but a miniature upturned decanter, spiked with dentelles itself.

Louis XIII Time Collection - The Origin 1874 is priced at £4,900 and is available from www.harrods.com.
