Lalique perfume bottle for "L'air du Temps" perfume by Nina Ricci featuring a rare yellow crystal stopper (limited edition?). The L'air du Temps design features a stopper of two frosted kissing doves on a twisted ridged bottle body. The original design for the "L'Air du Temps" perfume bottle was by the sculptor Jean Rebull, and was in the shape of a sun. But it was Marc Lalique who produced the iconic two doves atop a swirling ribbed body version, as presented here, for Nina Ricci. It was first produced in 1951 … Incidentally, Marc Lalique was friends with Nina Ricci's son Robert. The base of the bottle is block etched "Nina Ricci", "Made in France", and the side of the base engraved "Lalique ® France. The vase is also engraved "L715" which we believe may refer to it being a limited edition. The perfume bottle stands 9 cm (3.5") tall including the stopper. The stopper measures 9 cm (3.5") across the wingspan. All measurements are approximate The perfume bottle is in excellent condition with no faults noted. It does not have an original packaging.
