French Art Nouveau Perfume Flacon, Unknown Maker
« on: December 07, 2012, 05:43:51 PM »
Hello,

I recently purchased this French Art Nouveau Perfume Flacon, and wonder if anyone knows the maker/brand?

It bears a molded Made in France underneath.

It's very nice with the stopper having a grape vine motif highlighted with sepia patina. These frequently show
up attributed to Rene' Lalique, however, it is not cataloged anywhere.

Many thanks,

Hi Sorry to keep asking for more photographs but is it possible to have a clearly lit photograph of the stopper and the made in France mark with the stopper one against a white background please?
It would help to be able to see the sepia tone and how it is applied on the stopper.
thanks

These are the best photos I could get....the Made in France is extremely faint, and actually it was molded twice to the bottom, the other is even more faint.

I have something quite similar which wasn't catalogued either - at least not in the Lalique registers but it turned out to be designhed for Coty in the 1930s. The packaging glass does not always turn up in the luxury list ... but there is good information with the various Lalique collectors esp. in the US.

Yes, the quality of the molding/sepia patina all point to Lalique, however, the guys at RLalique.com have said it is not his.....

I spoke again with the administrator at RLalique.com, and he feels the fact that the stopper is only finished on one side is beneath the artistry of Rene' Lalique, and there is no record of this flacon in the company records as well...as a matter of fact, there is no reference to this flacon anywhere....it remains a mystery

Ummmm perhaps people bashing could be resisted... ? We don't want to cause problems for the board.  8)

I've removed my suggested link and the 2 responses, given that others have had / are aware of problems with that site.

The administrator over at RLalique.com sent me a link to this auction, with identical stoppers:
