    Bichara Saisit la Fortune bottle

    I wonder if anyone can help me with this bottle.
    Bichara Saisit la Fortune.
    I can't find this shape or this label on the www.
    I find that "Saisit la Fortune" was released in 1917.
    But is this the real thing ?
    Does anyone know if Baccarat made these bottles even though there are no Baccarat marks anywhere ?
    Thanks.

    Sure looks legit to me. Baccarat makes crystal, correct? Is it crystal? I don't think I've ever seen an embossed bottle made out of crystal before.

    No idea if crystal can be emossed. I found one or two hits on the www about Baccarat making bottles for Bichara in the early 1900s. Seems it could be worth a few $$ though.

    I'd guess no to Baccarat. For one thing it was WWI and I read that while they were able to stay open it was largely do to adapting themselves to the war effort. I'm not sure where making perfume bottles for a company in Syria would fit even though France and Syria were connected in some ways, Then again, I don't see a large reason for a supply of fine crystal glass at all, except maybe binocular lenses.
    That's just my thinking and I have been proved wrong before.
