Rene Lalique was one of the finest jewellers in Paris in the late 1800's to the early 1900's and when he went into glass making, became arguably the best glass maker in the world, and this can be seen why in this extraordinarily beautiful and elegant original Rene Lalique perfume bottle “Deux Figurines” that is just magnificent.
Dating from the mid-1920's, this exquisite perfume bottle is designed with two naked woman on the front that are standing in the most alluring pose. When perfume is poured into the bottle, it goes around these two nudes and highlights them even more and also shows the sophisticated design on the perfume bottle.
And then the stopper is just gorgeous with the open work which itself would have been very difficult to produce as well as a further two more naked women to add to the incredible charm.
The attention to detail in the stopper alone is just incredible and is a real testament to the quality that Rene Lalique was producing and shows just why his glass wear is regarded as the finest in the world.
With his signature of “R. Lalqiue” on the base, after his death in 1945 all further Lalique pieces were produced just with the “Lalique” signature without the letter “R”.
Measuring 11cm wide at the bast to 10.5cm or 13cm when the stopper is in, this is without a doubt one of his finest works and takes you back to the fabulous Art Deco period of the 1920’s.
On a further note, the provenance of this perfume bottle was that is was purchased at the Paris World Expo of 1925 adding to that alluring and wonderful feeling of the decadent and luxurious Art Deco period that has remained as popular today as all those years ago.
