Lalique 'Pour Homme - Athletes' Cologne
Gorgeous Lalique Crystal Glass Cologne bottle sculpted as two intertwined male figures, wrestling perhaps. It is a beautiful piece with contrasting clear and opaque glass defining the two muscular figures. The top part is signed 'FAC Lalique France'. The bottom is signed 'Lalique France. FAC 096'.
Factice bottles are part of a limited number created for retail outlets as display pieces to advertise the product. They are of the same high quality but generally do not contain the cologne, rather a dummy mixture coloured to look like the cologne. I personally cannot say whether this contains the proper cologne or not. It has a strong cologne smell to it but without anything to compare it to I wouldn't like to say exactly what is inside.
Such a beautifully sculpted piece of glass, great for the collector. It could quite possibly have the cologne in but could obviously be refilled with this scent or any scent for that matter. Also I think it would look stunning as decoration or as a desk weight as it is a heavy piece, weighing over a kilo even when empty.
It measures approximately 5" / 13cm tall and the base has a diameter of 3 1/2" / 9cm
It is free from cracks, chips and damage.
