TWO, Circa 1944, American, "French Fragrance #6" by Corot, Commercial Perfume Bottles in Original, Hot Pink & White Fitted Box. These superb perfume bottles were manufactured in New York, New York, by Corot, Inc., Circa 1944. This presentation set is fantastic! Two, Art Deco Style, clear glass, rectangular shaped perfume bottles fit snugly in their ORIGINAL, hot pink and white fitted box. This double, presentation set was definitely a coveted gift when it was first launched on the market! The front of these rectangular shaped, clear glass bottles are produced with electric pink paint/enameling. The eye-catching, electric pink paint jumps out at you! The highlight of these striking bottles is the electric pink/fushia and white ribbons enameled on the center of both bottles. The round cartouche at the top of each ribbon is painted with a bold, hot pink, double border against a creamy white background. French Fragrance is painted in pretty, pink script lettering inside the creamy white cartouche. The ribbons flow gracefully towards the base of the bottle. One ribbon is enameled a bright, hot pink the other white. Another striking cartouche accents the bottom of the ribbon. This cartouche is painted with the #6 in bold, white enamel. Both ribbons are in mint condition! This extravagant perfume bottle set is a fantastic prize! The bottom of the larger perfume bottle is further accented with the company name and contents in the same electric pink paint. The word "Content" has worn off - mentioned for accuracy! Painted on the bottom of the bottle: COROT DISTRIBUTOR * NEW YORK * Content 2 Fl. Oz. Both perfume bottles still retain their original, cream colored, ribbed, plastic/bakelite screw caps in excellent condition. Thirty percent of the original perfume remains in the larger bottle and the smaller bottle still retains eighty-five percent of the original perfume. The scent is absolutely divine. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed at the same time period. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailers individual labels. Two, original, clean, cream colored, paper labels on bottom and back of smaller perfume bottle. Printed on paper label on back of bottle in black lettering: Distributed by COROT * Fifth Ave. New York. Second label on bottom of bottle: 1/4 OZ. * S.D.A. CT. 466. The labels are in good condition with NO tearing or damages. This marvelous treasure comes complete with its original, Art Deco Style, FITTED box. I am not sure if the perfume bottle or the box is the prize! The eye-catching box is very heavy cardboard with fitted sections for each bottle. Trimming the edges of the box is a striking, bold, electric pink colored border. The focal point of this sensational box is the matching, hot pink and blue ribbons and cartouches. The same design as the bottles is continued on this outstanding box! The box has some wear from age but is in overall excellent condition. I did find a listing for this manufacturer but I could not find anything on this particular scent. Corot, circa 1944, is listed in Ken Leach's book "Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z" on page: 242. Guaranteed vintage. GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS! Guaranteed vintage. Larger perfume bottle measuring approximately 4 1/4 inches in height. Smaller perfume bottle measuring approximately 2 ½ inches in height. Box measuring approximately 4 ½ inches in height. This is a hard to find set in great condition! This perfume bottle set was also manufactured with other scents. I also have this set available in "French Fragrance #1, #2 and #4". Please inquire if you would like any of these other perfume bottle sets. This perfume bottle set would add a glamorous touch to any room! This marvelous scent bottle set is a great gift idea for the commercial perfume collector!
