La Belle Saison, Lalique Perfume Bottle 1925, tragic flaw. Here's a tragic beauty, a conspicuously flawed perfume bottle designed in 1926 by René Lalique for the Houbignant perfume company (est. 1775). Burnt sienna leaves form rays around an indented center of frosted glass, in which a a Greek goddess (?) with closed eyes rapturously sniffs a blossom. The other side is plain glass and has the Belle Saison label. The parfumier was Robert Bienaimé, who also created Houbignant's most famous perfume, the modestly titled "Quelques Fleurs" (Some Flowers).

This 3 1/4" tall bottle still has almost all of its scent, and no wonder - at some point it was dropped on its stopper, part of which broke off. The rest was jammed down into the neck of the bottle, causing a flaw in the glass. This is all quite visible in the third and last photo. I can take more photos if you like.

Shipped priority, double boxed, with insurance.
