Lalique perfume bottle for "L'air du Temps" perfume by Nina Ricci.

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 (René Lalique’s son) 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 this small bottle is engraved “Nina Ricci” and “Lalique bottle”.

The perfume bottle stands 7.5cm tall including the stopper. The stopper measures 7.5cm across the wingspan. All measurements are approximate

The perfume bottle is in very good condition and is presented in its original box which also contains a small plastic version of the stopper (purpose unknown). The box is in good vintage condition with a few surface marks/stains but no tears. The perfume bottle has been used as it carries the lingering smell of perfume, but no traces of liquid remain.
