There was a Lady Jockeys Association (now absorbed into the Amatuer Jockeys Association). I wonder if it was a souvenir for something they did?

One of the products mentioned in the French article was powders for Muslin Glass. I knew of Lobmeyrs so was intrigued what Appert produced. Found this account from 1878 if it was Appert or not, no idea.

And a modern version

Nice find so that gives an end date of 1931 with a merged company SEVBA (Société d'exploitation des verreries de Bagneaux et Appert frères réunies) continuing to 1947 but in the Bagneaux works.

I 'guess' the items listed at the 1878 exhibition were made by other companies using Appert's materials. None of their adverts imply they made any end products other than components such as candle inserts.

A perfume bottle, I believe it should have a teardrop shaped, clear, glass stopper. (any one which fits would be fine, if you can get hold of one.)
Most often found in Earthtones rather than this colourway.
I am clueless about ladies or jockeys. I would assume this must have been something personal somebody asked to be put on it at the time of purchase.

In 1878 they exhibited:

    Colored glass, coated on both sides, with another color in the middle; the two outside coats engraved, thereby showing three colors.
    Panels of glass mosaic, as samples of their enamels.
    Decorated Venetian glass ware.
    Vases, painted, with the necks ornamented with colored beads.
    Opal clock dial, with the hour-marks etched.
    Imitations of various precious stones, cut in cameos and diamonds.
    Colored beads, plain and depolished.
    Sheets of plated colored glass, as well as cylinders in all colors.
    A fan of spun glass in several colors.
    Etruscan vase colored with chrome green.
    Two large dishes decorated with their Chinese white.
    Enamels on cast and wrought iron.
    Chemical glass ware for laboratories.
    White and colored chimneys for light-houses.
    Rough-cast glass for deck-lights and lenticular apparatus.
    Sheet-glass for spectacles and optical purposes, white, blue, neutral, or smoked, rose-colored, with gold-plated opal.
In 1907 they still used the same name and had an showroom in Paris. Also producing for lighting and colours for ceramics.
Thanks Anne and Michael,
Anne I think you're right, thanks for the previous links.
There's another photo - it's a clear ripple vase (no tinge of colour)... sounds like Bagley! :)
