ONE OF A KIND! MONUMENTAL & Glorious, Circa 1940's, American, “Flower Garden” by Weldon, Inc., 5 PIECE Commercial Perfume Bottle / Gift SET in Original Floral Decorated, Fitted, Presentation Box. This exquisite presentation is a rare treasure! Weldon, Inc. was an American perfumer based in New York, New York. This OUTSTANDING AND RARE perfume bottle / Gift set comes complete with its original, flower decorated, fitted, presentation box. This FIVE (5) PIECE set includes: Parfum, Sachet, Cologne, Talc and Bubble Bath. This set is pictured in an original advertisement from McKesson’s Gift Book, circa 1940. I have included a copy of the original advertisement in my photographs. It is pictured in the advertising as #463, FLOWER GARDEN SET and originally retailed for $3.00. This sensational set was purchased directly from the estate of the original manufacturer. This UNIQUE set is the ONLY ONE available. The photos do not do this glorious piece justice! It is truly an out of this world TREASURE! This presentation set was definitely a coveted gift when it was first launched on the market! The entire presentation box is decorated with simple, yellow, blue, pink and pastel blue flowers against a bright pink background. The flowers are very interesting – if you look closely at the centers of the flowers they are ingeniously created with the faces of comedy and tragedy. The faces are fantastic! The sides of this presentation box are trimmed with a charming, pastel blue picket fence. The flowers (with faces) are even sprinkled along the tops of the fence. Printed on both sides of the box in blue script lettering: FLOWER GARDEN. The box has some wear from age but is in overall excellent condition with no tearing or damages. Box measures approximately 12 inches in length by 9 inches in width by 3 inches in height.
The clear glass, vase shaped Cologne and Bubble Bath bottles are both molded with vertical ribbing. They both gently taper towards the necks of the bottles. These charming bottles are molded with circular shaped, footed bases. These simple but elegant perfume bottles are designed with clean lines and are both in perfect condition. The original, white, plastic/bakelite screw caps are both in excellent condition. Ninety-nine percent of the original Cologne and Eighty-five percent of the original Bubble Bath remain in the bottles. The fragrance of the Cologne still smells absolutely divine.

The talc container is unopened and still retains its original inner seal.
