Louis XIII in Malaysia! One of our reader has this Rémy Martin Louis XIII Cognac at home in Johor, Malaysia.
“This decanter is an exact replica of a flask discovered on the site of the battle which was fought at Jarnac in 1569 during the religious wars between the Catholics and the Protestants. The shape and the decoration of the decanter show the influence of Italian Renaissance art, the taste for which was introduced into France by the Valois. Glassware recalling this style was long fashionable and especially so during the resign of Louis XIII. This led to the flask found at Jarnac being wrongly attributed to the period of Louis XIII, although this was in fact fifty years later than the real date of its manufacture, and to its being described as “The Louis XIII Decanter”, the name which it has kept ever since.”
