Circa 1930's, American, "Apple Blossom" Cologne by André Chenier, Clear Glass, Commercial Perfume Bottle with Original, Floral Decorated Box.
André Chenier was a Franco American perfumer based in New York. He was affiliated with the Marquis de Elorza. He launched his own range of fragrances as well as supplying B. Altman department stores. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed during the same period. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailer's individual labels. Please check out the many other outstanding items I have listed by this manufacturer. This manufacturer produced many lovely pieces in their vanity line.
Simple horizontal panels accent this Art Deco Style, clear glass, scent bottle. This rectangular shaped perfume bottle is a hard to find piece of historical memorabilia. The classic, rectangular shaped, clear glass base is clean and in perfect condition. Enameled on the front of the bottle in salmon pink colored lettering, "Apple Blossom Cologne". The painting on the bottle is wonderful. Vibrant pink colored flowers and gold colored leaves decorate the bottle. A garland of gold colored leaves encircles the name of the fragrance. The true, bright, pink and gold colored enamel was difficult to capture in the photographs. True to life, the color is more of a salmon pink and gold color. The colors are much brighter in reality! The eye-catching, pink and gold colored enameling is in good condition. The original, pastel pink colored, horizontally ribbed, plastic/Bakelite screw cap tops this brilliant, Art Deco Style perfume bottle. The cap screws perfectly on the bottle and it is in excellent condition. Forty percent of the original perfume remains in the bottle. The scent is lovely! This marvelous treasure comes complete with its original box and inner packaging. I am not sure if the perfume bottle or the box is the prize! Bold, colorful flowers, blossoms and leaves embellish this wonderful box. Brilliant, red and yellow colored flowers and green leaves encircle the box. The artwork is fabulous! Printed on the showy box in bold, black lettering, "APPLE BLOSSOM EAU DE COLOGNE * DIST. BY ANDRE CHENIER * 225 FIFTH AVE. NEW YORK * CONT 4 FL. OZ. * SDA CONN. 466". The box has some MINOR/Normal wear from age - but otherwise great condition with no other damages or tearing. There is minor paint loss to the word "Apple". Otherwise, the enameling is in great condition. The spots that you see in the photographs are dust, dirt and flashback from the camera. In the photographs, everything is MAGNIFIED. 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. 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 delightful perfume bottle is in great condition. There are no other DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLEABITES, NICKS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This superb perfume bottle measures approximately 5 inches in height. The gorgeous box measures approximately 5 ½ inches in height by 3 inches in length by 2 inch in width. This lovely scent bottle is a great gift idea for the commercial perfume collector. ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
