    Do you have the box and stopper?
    The box should be either a wicker basket, a red velvet box or a green velvet box. Most likely the wicker basket because of the square label. Bottle in the boxes typically have bean-shaped labels.
    Age can be determined more precisely by the engraved bottom of the bottle.
    Made in France by St Louis – before 1936
    Made in France by Baccarat – No Logo – 1936-1940
    Made in France by Baccarat – Logo – post WW2
    Without box it is worth $1,400-$1,700 depending on age and even more if it is from before WW2.
    With box and stopper it is worth $2,200-$3,000
    Contact me if you are interested in selling.

    Sebastian: No response from this poster? (Not Jeanne who posted on another thread also) but the original Canadian poster with the older Louis XIII bottle? Maybe send him a reminder to check in once in a while.

    This bottle is a newer “Age Inconnu” from the Baccarat logo and high serial number 778 or 718 (Serial numbers were assigned on a yearly basis but early years had less than 200 bottle runs)
    I bought the exact same bottle (No. 316) in a beige case with stopper for $2,400 in February.
    I believe it is from 1961 or 1962.
    This one is without stopper and box and has two broken fins. I will offer $1,500.
