Additional Information: 
Sold & distributed through Maison Lalique (Rene Lalique & Cie). Early bottle with technical innovation of a fused central disc. The perfume would have been contained in the hollow tube surrounding the disc. The beautiful figural stopper (bouchon) of the two nudes is very reminiscent of his art nouveau jewelry. Produced only with clear and frosted glass, this photo shows the warmth of the demi-crystal (12% lead) that R. Lalique preferred.
