BACCARAT – D'ORSAY, TROPHEE, PERFUME BOTTLE, c.1935
This perfume bottle was made by Baccarat (#757) for D'Orsay for the fragrance "Trophee." The bottle is unsigned. Baccarat did not systematically start signing their work until 1936. The bottle is empty. It is pillow-shaped and has a white die-cut label. The white stopper bears the D'Orsay coat of arms. The bottom of the bottle is highly polished and has an etched number that appears to be "88" – the same number is etched on the bottom of the stopper neck. This bottle is difficult to find with the label unstained and intact, especially after having been opened. The label was easily damaged by dripping perfume. This bottle was made in 3 sizes. This is the medium size. Fluid content is unknown.

A black-printed gold foil label is set into an impression on the front of the bottle. Below the label is a gold cord wrapped around the bottle bearing a tiny seal impressed with the signature "L"s. The bottom is polished and has a brown-printed paper label. This is a very heavy bottle for its size – more than half a pound (10.8 oz.). It may possibly be crystal, but I cannot guarantee it. Wonderful deco bottle.

Condition: Excellent – no chips or cracks; tiny flake on bottle rim; 2 tiny flakes on edge of hollow stopper neck; excellent front label, no tears, some age spots; partial bottom label.

There is a white die-cut label with the makers' name on the front center of the box bottom. The box is lined with the glossy yellow paper. This bottle was made in 3 sizes -- this is the largest of the 3. The fluid content is unknown. This is a hard-to-find bottle -- unopened and with box. Worthy of a high-end collection. Very heavy bottle for its size -- weighs close to 3/4 lb. (11.4 oz.).

Box - very good - no stains, secure hinge, small spot (about 1/4" wide) of missing paper on front section of well, nibbles front center edge of cover, teeny, tiny, pin holes front bottom edge (on interior frame), back left corner split but still secure - does not affect the way the cover closes. The paper on the back right corner is slightly scraped. It was difficult photographing this box as the light reflected off the glossy paper making it appear to have white scrapes where there are none. In spite of these minor flaws, this box is in very good condition for an 89-year-old paper box! Click on gallery image to see additional photos.
