Sophisticated! Circa 1950, French, "Dans La Nuit" Made by Lalique for Worth, Clear Glass, Factice, Commercial Perfume Bottle Complete with Original, Fitted Box and Suede Pouch
The House of Worth is a Haute Couture fashion house founded in the 1850s by Charles Frederick Worth. Worth was one of the first couture houses to branch out to luxury perfume. In 1924 Les Parfums Worth launched their first fragrance which was named Dans La Nuit (In the Night). Worth knew that presentation was most important. He hired Rene Lalique, the world renowned glass-maker to design the bottle.
The definition for factice literally means "fake". These showy bottles often referred to as a Dummy, were often used for display or advertising. These spectacular bottles were not for sale. A liquid solution that resembles the real perfume is usually inside these showy bottles. Most factice bottles do not contain real perfume. These highly sought after bottles vary in size, ranging from tiny to gigantic!
