Lovely! Circa 1930's, “Corsage Du Temps” by André Chenier, Mini/Purse, Commercial Perfume Bottle with Original, Floral Decorated Presentation 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 presentation set was definitely a coveted gift when it was first launched on the market! This sensational 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 period. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailers individual labels. This lovely, tall, rectangular shaped, clear glass, mini perfume bottle is created in a simple but classic form. This elegant perfume bottle is designed with clean lines and is in perfect condition. This striking, clear glass, scent bottle is clean and clear. It is NOT damaged in any way! Any discoloration in the photos is glare and shadows - this bottle is pristine! Original, ball shaped, jet black, plastic/bakelite screw cap in excellent condition. Fifty-five percent of the original perfume remains in the bottle and the scent is absolutely divine! Two, original, clean, paper labels are still affixed on both the front and bottom of the bottle. The rectangular shaped, purple colored, paper label affixed to the front of the bottle is outlined with a simple, bold, gold colored border. Printed on the paper label in gold colored lettering: Corsage Du Temps* André Chenier * NEW YORK. The label is very simple but elegant! The bottle is further embellished with bold, purple paint/enameling. The enameling is in mint condition. Printed on the front of the bottle: PERFUME. Printed on the cream colored, oval shaped paper label on the bottom of the bottle: André Chenier - N.Y. * 1/4 OZ. * SDA CT. 466. The labels are both in excellent condition with no damages or lifting. This marvelous treasure comes complete with its original outer box and inner packaging! I am not sure if the perfume bottle or the box is the prize! The eye-catching, fitted box is decorated all over with bold, colorful flowers, blossoms and leaves. The gorgeous flowers are all created in vibrant shades or red, purple, yellow green and blue. The outer box is cut out with a scalloped shape border to reveal the inner packaging. The oval shaped, inner packaging is beautifully accented with tons of gilt enrichment. The front of the fitted INNER box is printed with bold, white, fancy, script lettering: Corsage Du Temps * Andre Chenier * Du Temps * PERFUME. The box has some MINOR/Normal wear from age - but otherwise great condition with no other damages or tearing. Andre Chenier is listed in Ken Leach’s book “Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z” on page: 239. Perfume bottle measures approximately 2 ½ inches in height. Box measures approximately 4 1/4 inches in height. Perfume bottle and presentation box are both in fantastic condition! GREAT condition NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS! This marvelous scent bottle set is a great gift idea for the commercial perfume collector! ALL shipping costs are included! PRICED TO SELL!! **FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE**!!
