Additional Information: 
The mold depicts a frieze of dancing figures similar to those on Egyptian bas-reliefs. The surface is enameled in black, blue or red. The atomizer mount may be of a different form. Marcas et Dardel was a company that produced atomizers from 1910 until 1935. In the Rene Lalique et Cie registry of models, a mistake was made in the surname of the second partner, spelling it with a "B" rather than a "D". As a result one often sees these as Marcas et Bardel. There was also a parfum brule (perfume burner) made with the same glass mold and this is described in the Perfume Burner category (pictured on right and in that section).
