RARE! Circa 1930's, “Apple Blossom” by André Chenier, Mini, Commercial Perfume Bottle with Original, Floral Decorated Box. This exquisite presentation is a rare treasure! 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. 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 adorable, rectangular shaped, clear glass, mini perfume bottle is molded with Art Deco style, horizontal ribbing. The ribbing adds wonderful dimension to this spectacular bottle! This simple but elegant perfume bottle is designed with clean lines and is in perfect condition. Original, bright yellow, plastic/bakelite screw cap in excellent condition. This presentation set was definitely a coveted gift when it was first launched on the market! The label and the bottle 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. Eighty-five percent of the original perfume remains in the bottle and the scent is absolutely divine! Two, original, clean, cream colored, paper labels on box and front of bottle. The paper labels and box are both decorated with gorgeous artwork and bright green lettering. Printed on paper labels in green lettering: APPLE BLOSSOM * André Chenier * NEW YORK. The labels are fantastic! The labels are decorated with delicate blossoms in red and green against a cream colored background. The labels are in excellent condition with no damages or lifting. This marvelous treasure comes complete with its original outer box and inner packaging! The entire box and inner packaging are decorated with delicate flowers, blossoms and leaves. Box in great condition with one TINY - TINY tear/spit at front opening. Some wear from age - but otherwise great condition with no other tearing. This manufacturer is listed in Ken Leach’s book “Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z” on page: 239. Perfume bottle measuring approximately 2 inches in height. Box measuring approximately 3 inches in height. This is a hard to find set in great condition! Guaranteed vintage. GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS!
