A huge and wonderful Lalique clear and frosted glass scent bottle, the clear glass ribbed body with a frosted glass stopper in the form of two large doves with fine detail, signed Lalique. This 43oz vintage Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps kissing doves crystal perfume bottle comes packed in the original yellow boxes, we believe this example is c.1970’s. Do not confuse this with the smaller bottles being offered, this is the largest size and stands 12-1/2 inches (31.75 cm) tall with a wingspan of 8 inches (20.32 cm). This would make a splendid large decorative object in a home, and is from the most prominent French glassmakers, a really spectacular piece and a great talking point.
