Additional Information: 
This bottle represented an early response to the influence of Rene Lalique. Lalique's style had emphasized the importance of the stopper and Baccarat began to produce some figural stoppers. The body of this flacon is still classic Baccarat. The insect stopper is patinated dark gray and shows Art Nouveau influence. This presentation also contained a second perfume "Parfum D'Orsay." The gilded label would have identified this fragrance. There is no identifiable Baccarat mark on the bottle.
