For Sale I have a Beautiful and very well Executed Crystal Perfume Bottle made by "Lalique" of Wingen-sur-Moder in Alsace-Lorraine, France. This wonderful piece of Crystal Art Glass is known as the "Deux Fleurs" Perfume Bottle. The Perfume stands 3 1/2" tall and is 3 5/8" wide and 1 1/16" deep. The Perfume Bottle displays Two Conjoined Flowers which appear to be "Sunflowers". The Detail is outstanding as is expected from an Early Lalique piece. You can see the detailed ribbing in the outer flower petals as well as the round Seeds in the Center. The Face on both sides has a Frosted Look with Clear Crystal behind. The Stopper is even in the same Sunflower appearance in the Shape of the round seedy center. The Perfume is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks. nicks, chips or dings. This is true for the Bottle and the Stopper. This is amazing that this has survived almost 70 years without an issue. The piece is signed with the early stenciled sand-blasted "LALIQUE FRANCE" mark. This is an early mark that was used just after R "Rene" Lalique's death in 1945. They used this mark from 1945-1948. This Perfume bottle is known as shape number "529" in the early Lalique Catalogs. This Perfume was created in September 1935 exclusively for the House of Lalique as a container for one's favourite fragrance. There have been several of these on Ebay in the past few months. I don't recall seeing any of them from this time frame. They were all signed with the modern laser-etched mark "Lalique with the Registered "R" in a circle "France" Trademark. (note the use of the ®, which is not found on earlier pieces). These Perfumes are much later as that mark dates it from the 1980's forward. Subsequently there is a big Price difference. Today this piece Retails for as much as $425 new in the Box. Here is your chance to own a very early version of these piece for less than that!!
