What a find for perfume bottle and accessories collectors. It is a green lacquer painted box with decoration on all sides and a tiny handle. Inside the box are two empty bottles that are inscribed with Vantine's on the back. They would have held sandal wood and Wisteria blossom respectively. The stoppers are clear. The box is lined with blue velvet and also contains a tiny clear glass dauber. The bottles are 1 7/8" . The green lacquer box measures 2 1/2" high plus a 1" brass handle, 2 3/4" long and 1 1/2" wide. The box and bottles are in very good vintage condition. A faint hint of the scent is left.
A similar set was listed in Monsen & Baer "The Beauty of Perfume" page 47. This is a rare and beautiful find.
Unique and interesting antiques, art and collectibles.
