A Classic! Circa 1920, French, Clear Crystal, Commercial Perfume Bottle Produced by Baccarat for Guerlain.
The House of Guerlain is one of the oldest perfume houses in the world. In 1828, by Pierre Francois Pascal Guerlain founded the House of Guerlain. He made his name by concocting personalized perfumes for his customers and went on to become perfumer to the French Court and to other European royal houses. His first perfume store was located at 42, Rue de Rivoli in Paris. Pierre Francois composed and manufactured custom perfumes with the help of his two sons: Aime & Gabriel. His unique approach was to personalize perfume for a specific person, place or event. Guerlain catered to the high society of Paris. In 1853, Eau De Cologne Imperiale was created for Eugenie, Empress of France and wife of Napoleon III. This fragrance is still in production today. This fragrance established Guerlain as perfumer to the French Court.
This distinctive, large sized, Baccarat, crystal perfume bottle is understated elegance! Gently flowing scrolled shoulders accent the rectangular shaped, clear crystal base. This bottle is extremely heavy. This striking perfume bottle features a pierced, clear crystal, inverted heart shaped stopper. The original inverted, heart shaped, clear crystal stopper is in excellent condition with no chips or damages. The glittering stopper fits perfectly in this timeless bottle. This distinctive scent bottle is clean and clear. I did not clean this bottle because I did not want to lose the last bit of fragrance from the original perfume. The scent is lovely! The base of the bottle is acid etched with the mark for the Baccarat factory. It is also acid etched on the base of the bottle, "PARIS FRANCE". Incised on both the base of the bottle and the bottom of the stopper is the #64. This terrific bottle and the stopper were meant to be together. Sadly, over the years the label has worn away. This bottle is still fantastic without its label. I have priced the bottle accordingly. This exact scent bottle is pictured in "Perfume, Cologne and Scent Bottles" by Jacquelyne Jones North on page 120, color plate #7. It is also pictured in "Miller's Perfume Bottles A Collector's Guide" by Madeleine Marsh on page 44. This glorious bottle is much more beautiful in real life. It would look fantastic standing alone or in a collection. This bottle would be a great display piece. To be safe, I will say that there are a few, tiny, scratches in the crystal. The scratches are minor and do not detract from the bottles value. There is one tiny fleabite at the base of the bottle. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. I am selling this perfume bottle in "as is" condition. I have priced this piece at an extremely low cost to make up for the minor, no harm scratches and tiny ding. I am extremely particular and I ALWAYS try to mention EVERY, TINY detail. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Mentioned for Accuracy and Priced Accordingly. Otherwise, this perfume bottle set is in MINT condition. There are no DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This gorgeous perfume bottle measures approximately 6 ½ inches in height. This timeless, commercial perfume bottle is a must have for the collector. This classic perfume would make a great gift for the commercial perfume collector. ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
