Circa 1953, American, “Mon Desir” (My Desire) by Ivel, Clear Glass, Mini, Commercial Perfume Bottle.
The Ivel Company was located in New York, NY, circa 1940. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed at that time. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailer’s individual labels. Mon Desir translates literally "My Desire". Mon Desir was launched circa 1953.
Crisp, vertical ribbing accents the base of this square shaped, mini perfume bottle. This bottle is clean and clear. The original, gold tone, metal screw cap completes this sweet bottle. The cap screws perfectly on the bottle and it is ORIGINAL! 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! The # 4 is molded on the base of the bottle. This sweet bottle retains its original, rectangular shaped, gold, foil label printed with bold, black colored lettering. Printed on the foil label: MON DESIR by Ivel * NEW YORK, N.Y. * ¼ FL. OZ. A solid, jet-black colored border accents the gold foil label. The label is in good condition with wear and some fading. Mentioned for accuracy! Mon Desir by Ivel, is referenced in “Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z” by Ken Leach on page: Page 271. Ivel is listed on the Perfume Intelligence website. This whimsical perfume bottle measures approximately 2 inches in length. This hard to find bottle is guaranteed vintage. This super bottle is pristine! This lovely bottle is perfect for display on your dressing table! GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This bottle would be a great display piece! This delightful 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!
