This is a French art glass scent bottle for perfume or cologne. The date is circa 1925. The type and style of the glass places the origin of the bottle to one of the glassmakers near Daum Nancy.

The bottle is 8" high to the top of stopper. The belly is 4 ¼" by 1 ¾". The shape and size is similar to a small flask.

The glass is mold blown with a seam down each side, including the stopper.

The glass is thick. The color of the bottom is red touched with shades of orange and deepening to a really dark color at the bottom.

The stopper is figural, and shaped like a snail or escargot. The glass is yellow, shading yellow in the middle and lighter on the edges.

The rim is rounded and the mouth is flat. The bottom has a narrow foot rim that is not totally flat, which is how the glassmaker smoothed out the bottom edges of the bottle. The interior of the bottom indents inward and the middle of this area has a slight bulge outwards.

The bottle has some air bubbles. The inside edge of the mouth shows a little bit of nibbling (or pinprick nicks) and I think it is from the glassmaker tools. There is a line inside the glass at the bottom edge that doesn't show in a photo, not a crack, but a line that is part of the glassmaking process. The bottom shows scratches from age and shelf wear.

The glass is not signed.
