Vintage, French, Marcel Franck, Opaque, Black Crystal Atomizer Perfume Bottle.
In 1882, Leopold Franck founded the company that bears his name. Leopold died in 1907 and his business passed to his son, Marcel. Franck's original clientele were hairdressers and beauty product vendors. As the business prospered, his clients included the major Parisian department stores. Marcel Franck had French patents for his perfume atomizer hardware. His most popular creations were, "La Provencale", "L'Escale", "Le Kid", and "Le Parisien". Marcel Franck still manufactures atomizer hardware for perfume bottles today.
This outstanding bottle is a mate to another bottle that I have listed on Ruby Lane. Glittering, polished panels accent the base of this magnificent, Art Deco Style bottle. The base of this bottle is a brilliant jet-black color. The base shimmers in the light! This treasure is complete with its original, chrome plated hardware and matching, black atomizer bulb. An Art Deco style, chrome plated, acorn shaped finial ornaments the hardware. The black atomizer bulb is complete with its original, silk tassel. The chrome plated mounts and atomizer bulb are in excellent condition with no damages. The black atomizer bulb and plastic draw-tube stem unscrew and are removable. This unusual bottle retains remnants of its original aroma and the scent is divine! This bottle is top quality! The photographs do not show this piece well it is much more beautiful in real life! The opaque black glass was difficult to photograph without seeing all of the dust! The black and white spots that you see in the photographs are dust and dirt. In the photographs, everything is MAGNIFIED. The spots are NOT damage - just dust! This extraordinary perfume bottle would add a glamorous touch to any room. This amazing bottle is ready to go - just decant your favorite perfume and enjoy. This outstanding bottle is perfect for display on your dressing table. Engraved on the neck of the chrome hardware, MARCEL FRANCK * MADE IN FRANCE * BREVETE SGDG. French hardware is usually marked "Brevete”, "Depose", "Modele Depose", or "Bte. SGDG". People often mistake these markings for the manufacturer's marks. In reality Brevete means "Patented", SGDG: means "patented". These marks are shortened from the phrase Breveté Sans. Embossed on the base of bottle, MARCEL FRANCK * CVR * PARIS. This incredible perfume bottle measures approximately 4 ¾ inches in height. This hard to find bottle, I personally guarantee to be vintage. The elastic covering the atomizer cord is starting to fray. There is one chip towards the base of the bottle. It is not noticeable because it is located at the bottom of the panel. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Mentioned for Accuracy and Priced Accordingly! I ALWAYS try to mention EVERY, TINY damage. Otherwise, GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. The chrome plated mounts are in excellent condition. This bottle would be a great display piece! The MATCHING scent bottle is available. The listing # is DL522. How fabulous to be able to display both bottles on your dressing table. These bottles are available individually or as a set. This stunning perfume would make a great gift for the collector! ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
