I love the graphics on this STRIKING and very hard to find box that holds three bars of Maderas de Oriente Perfumed Soap by Myrurgia of Barcelona, Spain. Myrurgia is the known for their famous Maja fragrance. They launched this fragrance, "Maderas de Oriente" in 1920. I am not sure of the age of these but if I had to guess, I would think around the late 1930s or early 1940s. A FABULOUS and EXOTIC veiled woman adorns the cover of the box, decorated in lovely bright colors and this same design is repeated on the paper wrappers covering the soaps.
The soaps still smell divine and are in EXCELLENT condition with great clean wrappers. The box is in very nice vintage condition with no blemishes on the graphics of the woman. As can be expected with an item made of cardboard and this old, there is some shelf wear on the corner edges. Please view the photos as they are part of the description. There is also a water stain on the underside of the bottom portion of the box which cannot be seen from the front.
Each bar of soap weighs 90 grams and measures 3 1/2" by 2 1/4" by 1".
I have a similar box with three soaps in a different color scheme, with this same LOVELY lady and the matching face powder box. They look absolutely STUNNING on display with my perfume bottle collection.
This is a chance to add a MARVELOUS and UNIQUE vanity item to your collection.
Because most of the perfumes I sell are older samples, I cannot guarantee the freshness of the contents. They are being sold as collectible perfume bottles, that still retain some of their original perfume, or in this case perfumed soap.
