Note: The molded and enameled relief lettering on the versions of this bottle that have such lettering says LAVANDE ALPY APT_VAUCLUSE. Lavande is French for lavender. Alpy is likely the name of an unknown company. Apt is a small city of about 12,000 people (2017) in southeastern France in the Vaucluse department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. The town is about a 7-hour drive south of Paris or around 375 crow flies miles at the foot of the Luberon Mountains (southern Alps). In Lalique's time and to this day the area was and is famous for it's incredible lavender fields.

Also Note: This model is known in 5 sizes: approximately 9, 10.5, 15.5, 18.5, and 22.5 cm. We show all five sizes on this page. The lavender sprigs design on the front of the bottles was not exactly the same or exactly proportioned across all the sizes. So the smallest bottles are a lot busier (more densely decorated) than the largest. All 5 sizes have the rectangular area centered near the bottom. The 22.5 cm, 18.5 cm, 15.5 cm, and 10.5 cm sizes have all appeared with and without the lettering. We have never seen an example of the smallest size with lettering, but we've only seen a few examples of that smallest size. The non-lettered bottles must have contemplated a label for that space, though we have never seen a labeled example. We speculate that the lettered bottles were the first run. And that when the crash that began in October 1929 came, whatever the lettering contemplated fell apart. So Lalique re-made the bottles after removing the lettering from the mold with a plan or hope to market them to someone else. The 5 molds from late November 1929 all have bis after the mold numbers. That's usually an indicator there were previous versions of the molds. Everything about this bottle design, fragrance, and the company behind it are a mystery (at least to us). Below you will find 4 of the 5 sizes. The 2nd largest approximately 18.5 cm size is not yet listed.
