This bath is inspired by the antique and very close to the miniature models created by Luigi Valadier (1726-1785) for the deser of the Bailli de Breteuil in 1778. These desers reproducing temples, arches and other ancient vestiges with a great variety of semi precious stones are the most emblematic creations of the Valadiers despite the fact that only three are known today in a more or less complete set.
