Is this what's called a "Hittite" bottle. Hard to find any info about it.
Bottom is signed Lalique. My mother had it in her collection.

    Marie-Claude Lalique designed the bottle in 1992.
    I think the stopper is correct.

    Elsie, it's a lovely perfume bottle with even lovelier memories.

    Hi, scandinavian and vetraio. I also was a bit unsure about the stopper when I first looked. It appears to be the original when compared to the following, both of which have poor photography of the stopper.

    Here is the Hittite for Maison Lalique bottle on the website of a well-known perfume bottle expert. The photography doesn't show the stopper very well:

    Another photo from the Museu Del Perfum in Andorra. However, the lighting makes it difficult to see the stopper:

    Here's one on ebay, just for reference purposes, but I never use a listing as a "definitive" resource. :-)

    Strangely looks like the metalwork of Gustav Gurschner that "cogito" has on Collector's Weekly.
