This is a French Baccarat crystal art glass scent perfume bottle, or for cologne. The bottle is marked on the bottom with the acid stamp of Baccarat, a mark that was first used around 1860, up to the early 1900s, maybe as late as 1936.
The bottle is 4 3/8” high to the top of the stopper and 3” wide at the belly.
The color of the glass is unusual. In bright light and sunlight, the color is pink-to-lavender. In dimmer light, the color is purple-to-blue. It leaves me going huh, what is the real color. Truthfully, the crystal color is different, depending upon the light.
The glass has shapes, round bumps and squares, and the stopper has rounded curlicues.
The stopper is original to the bottle.
There are a few slight nicks on the side of the stopper, the part that inserts into the bottle, and which did not show up in the photos but are there. There are no other chips, nicks or cracks, and minimal bottom wear.
The rim is rounded. The bottom is slightly indented and polished smooth.
The acid stamp mark is the circle with the wine goblet, decanter and tumbler, with the words Baccarat above and France below; the words are contained inside the circle.
