Around 1920, René Lalique designed a number of so-called Brûle Parfums or perfume burners in the form of tiaras and domes. The Sirènes is counted among the domed ones. The burner consists of a reservoir for fuel alcohol 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 frosted glass with aqua blue patina. The siren or mermaid represents temptation referring to Homer's Odysseus.
