I can't identify this French Art Nouveau perfume bottle, circa 1910. It is very similar to Rene Lalique's "Ambre Antique" in form and decoration. Bottle has four embossed classical maidens in different poses and patinations (blue, ochre, red, green). Stopper is a long, attenuated glass dauber with cork girdle. Head of stopper is a domed-disc-shape with quatrefoil in bas-relief. Bottle badly cracked!, possibly from a misguided attempt to remove a frozen stopper. Original label is all but illegible, but font style is clearly Art Nouveau, and the language is French. Tried to match the marks on label with identified contemporary French purveyors of scent, but not with firm success. My best guess is 'La Parfumerie de la Société Hygiénique'. Bottle measures 11 cm tall, 3.1 cm across base. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
