Artistic & Unusual! Circa 1937, American, “Infatuation” by Duchess of Paris, Lantern Shaped, Novelty, Commercial Perfume Bottle
Duchess of Paris was located in New Jersey, circa 1930. They specialized in novelty perfume bottles. Duchess of Paris was also affiliated with Blue Waltz and the Joubert and Jolind of New York, New York and Jersey City, New Jersey. 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.
This sweet perfume bottle is realistically created in the shape of an Oriental lantern. I am nuts about this cute, lantern shaped bottle! It is a prize! The milky white, opaque glass base is topped with the original jet black colored cap. The original, jet black colored, plastic/bakelite screw cap forms the top of the lantern. The beautifully shaped cap is incredibly detailed with a lovely geometric pattern. The entire cap is molded with various shapes. The amount of work on this tiny cap is amazing! Unfortunately, in the photographs it was difficult to show all of the detailed work on the cap. The pattern is so tiny! This sweet bottle stands on five, tiny, black glass feet. The round shaped, jet black colored glass base of this adorable bottle is accented with tiny panels. The panels glitter in the light. I did not clean this bottle because I did not want to lose the last bit of fragrance from the original perfume. The scent is lovely! This hard to find bottle is in great condition with no damages. Sadly, over the years the label has worn away. Infatuation by Duchess of Paris is listed in Ken Leach’s book “Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z” on page: 251. This fragrance and the manufacturer are also listed on the Perfume Intelligence website. This delightful perfume bottle measures approximately 2 inches in height. Guaranteed vintage. GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS! This terrific scent bottle is a great gift idea for the commercial perfume collector! ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase.*** ALL shipping costs are included!
