Ambre De Siam Perfume at Rago Auctions sells for $25,200

Rene Lalique Ambre De Siam Perfume BottleThe rare perfume bottle Ambre De Siam appeared at the Rago Arts and Auction Center yesterday in their two day Craftsman Auction Weekend Sale, along with around 10 other R Lalique items. The bottle, which was in very good condition except for a small chip on the bottom of the stem of the stopper, rarely appears at auction. It’s a classic and innovative R Lalique design that brings out not just the R Lalique collectors, but also the larger perfume bottle collecting crowd. In the end, the bottle surpassed its $5000-$6000 pre-sale estimate, and worked it’s way up from $5000 to $21,000, which made the premium inclusive total just over $25,000. The Oracle says that this bottle is the source of some historical confusion, originally appearing in some literature as an in-house RLalique bottle. Evidence exists that his bottle was sold by Volnay. The stopper itself exists as cachet. A good result for one of the great Rene Lalique designs in near original condition.
