Cute! American, Circa 1930's, “Gardenia” Commercial Perfume Bottle by Orelay (Genessee Cosmetics Co.) Orelay (Genessee Cosmetics Co.) was located in New York, NY, and produced many novelty presentations. Novelty perfume bottles were often sold in dime stores and were made in many whimsical shapes. These wonderful, novelty bottles were produced to hold various scents. 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 Art Deco Style, clear glass, rectangular shaped, mini scent bottle is molded with simple, vertical ribbing. The classic, rectangular shaped clear glass base is clean and in perfect condition. This bottle still retains remnants of its original aroma and the scent is absolutely divine! The original, gold tone, metal screw cap is in good condition with one tiny ding. Both the cap and the bottle are in need of a cleaning. I will leave the cleaning to the proud new ownder. This sweet bottle still retains its original, rectangular shaped, gold, foil label with bold, black colored lettering. Printed on the foil label: Gardenia by Orelay * DISTRIBUTOR GENESSEE TRADING CO, INC * NEW YORK, N.Y. * CONT 1/4 FL. OZ. The label is in fair to good condition with wear and some lifting. Mentioned for accuracy! This manufacturer (The House of Trè-Jur) is listed in Ken Leach’s book “Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z” on page: 260.
