C.1900 FRENCH Paper Cologne Label "Rose D'Orient"
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Both Art and I love paper and with Art’s collection from the past 50 years and my collection from the last 30 years, we have a lot of ephemera to offer on Ruby Lane. It is going to take some time to get it all listed, but when we finish, there should be something to tempt anyone who visits the shop. Up for offer now…..
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: So beautiful! Here's a French toilet water label aka Eau de Cologne label for Rose D'Orient. From Paris, France, and manufactured during La Belle Epoque the label is in 2 parts - a neck band and the main front label. Coloring of the label is mint green, pink and dark rose. The artwork appears to be DeLongpre or even C. Klein/
CONDITION: Excellent with no tears, etc. Coloring is slightly darker than what shows in the scan. In other words, you'll gasp when you see in person!
NOTE: The paper always look better in person than in my scans/photos.
HALLMARKS: Made for Giraud Fils, Grasse, Paris. France.
SIZE: Neck band measures 2-11/16" x 5/8". Main label measures 2-1/4" x 1-3/4".
FINAL COMMENTS: I only have a limited number of these labels and once they are gone, they are gone. Contact me if you need more than 1.
FURTHER NOTE: I can put an awful lot of paper into one envelope so be assured, if you buy more than 1 piece of paper, I will adjust the postage once I receive the purchase order. And please, don’t pay until I HAVE revised the postage. Thanks.
