A fabulous duo! A vintage still sealed in cellophane bottle of Chanel No 5 perfume plus an opened Chanel No 5 round box of dusting powder with original Chanel powder puff!
The perfume was purchased in France at Galeries Lafayette, a famous Paris department store, as can be seen imprinted on the original price tag of 1700 francs. We believe the white with black accent box contains another box which contains the bottle of perfume. Although unopened, we can hear the perfume when we shake the package, so we know it's in there! All appears to be well, and the only thing wrong (although it's not really "wrong") is that the cellophane is torn in one area across the front of the box and thus is a bit loose overall. The box measures 2 7/8" x 2 1/8" x 1 1/8".
The Chanel No 5 dusting powder is vintage and has been opened. I would say it's 2/3 full--really quite a lot of powder. The case is hard white plastic. The lid has the faded Chanel logo on top and a faded gold band around the bottom with "Chanel" on it as you can see in the photos. The original powder puff with Chanel logo on one side and full puff on the other is included. The puff fits over the hand (like a mitten) and appears to be made of a very soft fabric, perhaps lambswool. The bottom is marked with the Chanel No 5 logo and New York, NY and says the net weight was originally 8 ounces. The box measures 5 1/4" in diameter and is 2 1/2" high.
