Found in India, Sri Lanka and other parts of Southeast Asia, coromandel, or calamander wood, is one of the most distinctive timbers in the world. Known for its distinct black and hazel striped coloring, this desirable wood has been used for centuries to make furniture, stringed instruments, and precious personal items such as this remarkable decanter box.
Established by the Royal Decree of Louis XV in 1765, Baccarat has consistently produced glass and crystal works that have revolutionized and dazzled the industry. From the beginning, the company received numerous royal commissions from French nobility and aristocrats across Europe, most notably Tsar Nicolas of Russia, Louis XV, Louis XVI and Napoleon.
