Rene Lalique Perfume Bottle Camelia by Lalique for D’Orsay Appears

Rene Lalique Camelia Perfume Bottle Circa 1912Rene Lalique Perfume Bottle Camelia for D’Orsay Appears at Auction: A wonderful and pretty rare R Lalique perfume bottle Camelia circa 1912 has appeared at auction online. It started at $9.99 no reserve, and is already over $800. The seller, as is usual in the circumstances, apparently did not know the true value of this perfume bottle, did not know the name of the bottle, and did not know the bottle was the work of Rene Lalique. He has been inundated with requests to stop the auction by buyers hoping to get a bargain. Humorously, the seller posted the following in his ad: “I have been asked to end this early and will not! So please stop asking me!” Smart seller!

Rene Lalique Camelia Pair of Perfume Bottles Circa 1912This bottle was reportedly made in two sizes, 9 and 10.5 cm, both of which appeared in the Lalique Sale in Paris at Boisgirard and Associes on December 6, 2005 which was the liquidation of many great items from the Marie Claude Lalique estate. At that sale, the smaller bottle was listed at 9.5 cm, but as you can see from the photo in that 2005 sale catalogue which is shown here, it appears there is more than a 1 cm difference in the heights of the two bottles. Also, neither bottle was signed, just like the one currently online. It appears from the measurement in the ad for this Camelia, that this is the larger of the two.
