Baccarat Perfume Bottle Sitting Buddha by Houbigant 1920s
Crystal Buddha Perfume bottle made by Baccarat Crystal company in France. The Buddha sits in his original fabric box. The box has some staining on the inside, as the perfume still resides in the bottle. The crystal perfume bottle is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There is a metal ring that goes in the top, which seems to be amiss.
The Baccarat logo is etched on the bottom of the clear crystal glass bottle. The box is darling and always a plus if you are a serious perfume bottle collector. The perfume box is black fabric and red cardboard inside with gold trim. The details of the sitting Buddha, are etched into the crystal.
Houbigant was the creator of this perfume and perfume bottle with box. Houbigant opened its doors in 1795 and is one of the oldest perfumeries and still exist today.
The perfume box with doors, is 4 1/8 tall by 3 3/8 wide. The Buddha bottle is 3 1/4 inches by 3 inches wide. As is with most perfume bottles of this age that still hold perfume, the stopper is stuck. There are ways to try and remove it without damage, but I will leave that up to the new owner. Very nice. The perfume presentation came out in the 1920's.
