Additional Information: 
Spherical flacons were rare before 1920 but were very much in vogue after that date. This almost spherical flacon has a surface entirely studded with small concave flowers resembling forget-me-nots. The center of each flower, a miniscule pearl enameled black, was the deepest point of the relief. Very fine, hollow molded radiating lines decorate the petals. The matching stopper reproduces one of the flowers on the flacon. Ref: The Art of Rene Lalique, Christie Mayer Lefkowith, 2010.
