A TREASURE! Circa 1920's, American, "Folle Jouir " by DuBois Presentation Set! TWO Commercial Perfume Bottles in Original, Floral, Gold Foil, Fitted Box.
n the 1920's, Du Bois was located in New York, NY. This sensational perfume bottle set was purchased directly from the estate of the original manufacturer. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed at the same time. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailer's individual labels.
This presentation set is fantastic! Two, Art Deco Style, clear glass, rectangular shaped perfume bottles fit snugly in their ORIGINAL, floral, gold foil, fitted box. This double, presentation set was definitely a coveted gift when it was first launched on the market! 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. These TWO, Art Deco Style, clear glass, rectangular shaped, mini scent bottles are molded with simple, vertical ribbing. These unadorned but elegant perfume bottle have clean lines and they are in perfect condition. Eighty percent of the original perfume remains in the smaller bottle and the larger bottle is empty. The scent is absolutely divine! Original, cream colored, ribbed, plastic/bakelite screw caps are both in excellent condition. Both bottles still retain their two, original, clean, paper labels on front and bottom of bottles. Showy, original, square shaped, cream colored paper label with rust colored lettering on front of bottle. Printed on paper label: Folle Jouir * DUBOIS * DISTRIBUTOR * 225 Fifth Avenue New York, N.Y. The entire label is accented by an ornate, vibrant, aqua colored, leafy border. The eye-catching, aqua colored, leafy border jumps out at you! Printed on cream colored label on base of both bottles: DUBOIS - N.Y. * 1/4 OZ. * SDA CT. 466. The labels are in good condition with NO tearing or damages. The label on the front of the larger bottle has some minor staining - mentioned for accuracy - no harm! This extravagant perfume bottle set is a fantastic prize! This marvelous treasure comes complete with its original, floral decorated, gold foil, FITTED box. I am not sure if the perfume bottles 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, elaborate, gold colored, floral design. The box is further embellished with a scalloped shaped border. The original, clear cellophane is still affixed to the lid of the box. The lid lifts open to reveal the two scent bottles set in their fitted sections. The bottles are set in a heavy cardboard box accented with a gold colored, embroidered pattern. The sides of the box are ornamented with the same ornate, floral motif. This outstanding set is further protected with its original, cardboard sleeve. Printed on one side of the protective sleeve: FOLLE SET. The entire box and outer packaging is in MINT condition! After doing a bit of research I did find a listing for this perfumer but I could not find anything on this particular scent. This manufacturer (DuBois, circa 1920) is listed in Ken Leach's book "Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z" on page: 251. Larger perfume bottle measuring approximately 2 ½ inches in height. Smaller perfume bottle measuring approximately 2 inches in height. Box measuring approximately 6 1/4 inches in length by 5 inches in width by 1 1/4 inches in height. This is a hard to find set in great condition! Guaranteed Vintage.
