This beautiful perfume bottle was designed by Salvador Dali at the request of the fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, and made by Baccarat. In the year when World War II came to an end, Dali used the sun to symbolize the joy of peace regained and incorporated it into an image of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who represented the glory of France.
