Forever Amber. A fragrance launched in 1945 by Kathryn, Inc (owned by Kay Daumit) launched in connection with the 1943 novel by Kathleen Winsor.
The factice, shown in Chicago retail stores is 15.5" tall and is shaped like the abdomen and legs of a woman in a flowing garment.
The novel tells the story of amorous courtesan Amber St. Clare in the court and bedroom of Charles II. The novel was banned in Boston and throughout Massachusetts, and the controversy over its purported indecency stimulated sales and became a bestseller.
The perfume was wildly popular but was discontinued by 1950 after a nasty lawsuit between the author and Kathryn Inc.
No nicks, scratches or dings. Faint traces of perfume can be seen inside of the bottle.
