Here is a table that describes all the differences of the Louis XIII bottles that have been produced in the past up till now. To illustrate some of the major changes, I put up some pictures that you can click. Through the years the packaging of the bottles also changed a lot, but I have not gone into that. If you like, you can check this out on a page that helped me a lot, but it looks like this page is not maintained anymore: here.

LOUIS XIII WHITE TOPS, from 1874 till 1981.
A word of warning: combinations of bottles and boxes are not always original. Owners have often added loose boxes later. Loose boxes are offered all over the net. Mistakes have also been made in shops when putting them back.

LOUIX XIII GOLD TOPS, from 1979 onwards.
A warning is in order: many combinations are offered at auctions that do not belong together. Over time, many bottles have apparently been put back in the wrong boxes. Proof of this are the many combinations where the bottle number written on the bottom, does not match the bottle number in the booklet .
