There were 2 powder boxes (see one in this collection), a sponge bowl, a soap dish, pin tray & comb tray. Also produced were 3 atomizers (though not considered part of the set) that utilized the same bodies as the three flacons. This example shows the beautiful opalescent glass that Lalique utilized. The pearl motif was used in a number of other bottles.
