This is an amazing find for perfume bottle and accessories collectors. It is a red lacquer painted box with decoration on all side and a tiny handle. Inside the box are two empty bottles that are inscribed with Vantine's on the front. They would have held Turkish Rose and Mikado with clear stoppers. The box is lined with blue velvet and the gold Vantine's label with the gondola on it. The bottles are 2" (5.1)cm. The red lacquer box measures 2 1/2" high plus a 1" brass handle, 2 3/4" long and 1 3/4" wide. The caddy and bottles are in very good vintage condition. A similar set was listed in Monsen & Baer "The Beauty of Perfume" page 47. This is a rare and beautiful find.

The retailer in me wants more dimension, color, texture and artistry. Beauty or whimsey are a must.
