This bottle is named after the family estate. It has been continuously produced since introduction and numerous examples exist. Most are the post-war bottles in full leaded crystal with no patination. This pre-war example used patination on the stopper. Not to be confused with the 1991 reproduction for the Lalique Society of America with lavender stopper which is also pictured in this category. In 2013 Lalique continued production of this bottle adding versions with blue and red glass stoppers.
