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

April 24th, 2009

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.

Here is a link to a saved/cached image version of the original Rene Lalique Camelia Perfume Bottle listing online. You may have to use the zoom function of your browser (or whatever program opens images for you) to get the cached image to expand in the window if it does not appear full size.

We’ve also listed this bottle in our R Lalique Worldwide Auction Section. And don’t forget as you take a look, there is a rare matching box that goes with this bottle! The two pieces together making quite a nice display if you can acquire them.

R Lalique 1912 Trois Guepes Perfume Appears on Ebay

November 14th, 2008

R Lalique Trois Guepes PerfumeSignificant restoration and a 1 feedback seller, but rare has hen’s teeth, and hard to find in any condition. The R Lalique Perfume People (sorry about the alliteration, couldn’t resist, but at least we didn’t single out the Particularly Passionate ones) and R Lalique collectors of all stripes might find it worth checking into. Something tells us that this may not be the first ride at the rodeo for this bottle, but no way to know without some investigation. And either way, a cool and hard to get, early R Lalique design. The Ebay Item Number is 120333834682.

A reader emailed in this photo, asking if this atomizer had been identified. This is a great looking atomizer, and we told our man from down under that we’d post it up here for him and see if any of our users have information that can help him. We’re looking forward to seeing any comments or emails from you all that might shed some light on the identity of what for now is the Mad Max Thunderdome Atomizer ……… the atomizer with no name :).

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

September 29th, 2008

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.
