An amusing little flacon ‘A Suma’ for Coty

By lennart,

This rare and small bottle was designed by Pierre Camin in 1934 according to the Coty archives. However the original design is from Rene Lalique based upon his vase ‘Anemones’ dated 1911. It’s well known that Lalique and Coty got in conflict after 1912 over patents and designs. But maybe the crisis-years drove them again into cooperation.

An Art Nouveau style perfume burner ‘Sirenes’ by Lalique

By lennart,

This early Brule Parfum a alcool named ‘Sirenes’ is hard to find in opalescent glass and with the original inner fitting. This piece is transparant opal with a sepia stain. The molding is perfect with the molded signature ‘R. Lalique’ dating it close to the design date of 1920. The original top is in excellent condition.

Just for accuracy it must be mentioned that the inner core has a very tiny flake, but this is not visible due to the original glass cordholder and top. Overall very good condition.

Height: 18 cm.
