Rene Lalique Perfume Bottle Le Succes : Lalique for D’Orsay Online

Rene Lalique Perfume Bottle Le Succes For D'OrsayLalique Perfume Bottle Le Succes by Rene Lalique for D’Orsay: The rare circa 1914 Lalique Perfume Bottle Le Succes, a commercial version of the great Maison Lalique Perfume Bottle Amphytrite, has appeared online in seemingly good order, from a Kentucky seller, with a starting bid of $30 and no reserve. Both the perfume bottle and the stopper are different than the Lalique Amphytrite bottle, but both are so close in design that the unmistakable relationship is very evident. Both stoppers feature a female figure, both bottoms feature a snail shell style design.

With the later addition in an addendum to their seminal work on Lalique Perfume Bottles (coincidentally titled Lalique Perfume Bottles) of another bottle that they have also catalogued as Le Succes, Glen and Mary Lou Utt have catalogued this perfume bottle as Le Succes (A).

Rene Lalique Perfume Bottle Le Succes For D'OrsayThe pictures in the online auction ad are not all that great, but the identity of the bottle is still discernible. All three photos from the online listing are shown here. The seller has near 400 feedbacks with a 100% rating. Hopefully (for the seller :), the seller is in the “smart seller” category we talk about here from time to time. We wrote the seller to get the condition particulars, and received this reply: The bottle has no chips or cracks. Having never seen another I am not sure if the pale green is true or faded. Thank you for asking. Carla. Later, the seller added: The letters are impossible to read in their entirety. The first letter is an “L” then it looks like a partial “A” and then the next letter looks like a partial L or “I” then nothing i can see and then “QUE”. I do not see “France”. And also: If this turns out to be a fake which I don’t think it is, I will just refund the purchaser their money. Neil Diamond would love this seller! But as always, check it out for yourself! The auction ends on May 9th.
