Terrific, Unopened, Circa 1940, American, "Carioca" Commercial Perfume Bottle by Jean La Salle, in Original, Pastel Pink Colored, Fitted, Cardboard Box
During the 1940s, Jean Lasalle was located on Park Avenue in New York, NY. She sold colognes, pancake make-up and other products. Her two most noted colognes were Carioca and Hayloft. She packaged her products in pale colors of powder pink and baby blue. Feathers and other similar design motifs accent her products. This cologne presentation set is a wonderful piece of historical memorabilia. The estate of the original manufacturer sold me this delightful, perfume presentation set. Similar design motifs accent the wide range of products. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed during this period. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailer's individual labels.
This upright, rectangular shaped clear glass perfume bottle is a hard to find piece of historical memorabilia. Sloping shoulders accent this wonderful, Art Deco style cologne bottle. Crisp ribbing accents the bold sloping shoulders. The highlight of this superb bottle is the turquoise colored lettering and flower. A simple, turquoise colored flower is the ageless logo for Jean La Salle products. The eye-catching, turquoise blue colored flower stands out against the clear glass. "JEAN LASALLE * CARIOCA COLOGNE" is painted in bright, turquoise blue colored enamel on the front of the clear glass bottle. Printed in tiny, gold colored lettering on the base of the bottle, "DIST BY JEAN LASALLE * NEW YORK * 4 FL. OZ. * S.D.A. CT 466" The bold enamel is in good condition with minor loss. The original, cream-colored, plastic/Bakelite screw cap tops this charming perfume bottle. The cream-colored, plastic/bakelite screw cap is in excellent condition. The cap screws perfectly on the bottle and it is original. This striking bottle is clean and clear. I have two perfume bottle sets from this manufacturer. The first set is UNOPENED. There is some loss of perfume due to evaporation. The original, cork seal is still intact! The second set is empty. 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! Both sets are in great condition with no damages. 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. The original, fitted box is created in Jean Lasalle's trademark powder pink color. Printed on the box in vibrant, turquoise colored lettering, "JEAN LASALLE * CARIOCA COLOGNE". Printed in tiny, turquoise colored lettering on the bottom of the box, "DIST. BY JEAN LASALLE * 225 FIFTH AVE. N.Y. * PRICE $1.00 * CONT. 4 FL. OZS.". The eye-catching, turquoise blue colored flower stands out against the pink colored box. The box is in great condition with minor scuffs normal for the age of this item. To be safe, I will say that there are a few, tiny, scratches in the glass. The scratches are minor and do not detract from the bottles value. As mentioned previously, there is minor loss to the enamel. 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 beautiful perfume bottle is in great condition. There are no DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLEABITES, NICKS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This desirable perfume bottle measures approximately 5 inches in height. The sensational box measures approximately 5 ½ inches in height.
