Around 1920, René Lalique designed a number of so-called Brûle Parfums or perfume burners in the form of tiaras and domes. The Papillons is counted among the domed. The burner consists of a reservoir for alcohol, a glass riser with a wick and a dome-shaped glass cover. Given the condition of the offered copy, it can be concluded that this burner has never been used, if at all. The burner is made of double-layered opalescent glass with a bluish patina. The butterfly represents metamorphosis or self-transformation.
