Vintage, (Circa 1930's) UNOPENED! American, "Geranium" Colored Lipstick by Andre Chenier in Original, Polka Dot Covered, Cardboard Box.
Circa 1929, André Chenier was located in New York, NY. André Chenier was a Franco-American perfumer. He was affiliated with the Marquis de Elorza. He launched his own range of fragrances as well as supplying B. Altman department stores. This sensational lipstick 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 hard to find piece of historical memorabilia is still in fantastic condition with no damages. The lipstick color is called "Geranium". "Geranium" is a deep, ruby red color. The lipstick looks as if it is in as perfect condition today as when it was originally put on the market for sale. The lipstick is in immaculate condition and has never been opened! The lipstick is housed in an oversized, cream or deep red colored, bakelite container. Inside each UNOPENED box there is a different colored lipstick container. The containers are either a deep, ruby red or an elegant cream color. The original, round shaped, paper label is affixed to the bottom of the lipstick The label is in perfect condition with no damages or lifting. Printed on the label in bold, deep blue colored block lettering: André Chenier Distributor * 225 FIFTH AVE. * NEW YORK, N.Y. Embossed on the bottom of the bakelite container: Patent Pending * Made in U.S.A. This outstanding lipstick is nestled in the original, rectangular shaped, pale blue colored, cardboard box.Bright, pink colored blossoms decorate the pale blue colored cardboard box. Printed on the front of the box, "André Chenier * DISTRIBUTED BY ANDRE CHENIER * 225 FIFTH AVE. * NEW YORK, N.Y.". Stamped on the bottom of the box: Geranium. Unfortunately, due to the many years the swivel mechanism is stuck. I have not tried to force the lipstick to swivel upwards - I did not want to ruin the PRISTINE case or lipstick. I am selling this cosmetics set in "as is" condition. I have priced this lipstick set at an extremely low cost to make up for the frozen mechanism. I am extremely particular and I ALWAYS try to mention EVERY, TINY detail. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Mentioned for Accuracy and Priced Accordingly. Otherwise, the lipstick and the original cardboard box are both in fantastic condition. There are no DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, NICKS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This unusual lipstick measures approximately 2 inches in length. The colorful box measures approximately 2 1/4 inches in length.
