    Default Trying to date my vintage No. 5...

    What do you think about the fit?

    It's not 100% but this bottle doesn't match any of the other known eras of bottle design.



    The glass at the bottom has 'Chanel France' engraved so I doubt it's a fake.
    The powdery quality of the vintage juice inside fits some netizen's comments about their own vintage No. 5s from the 40s.

    I can't see the pics, because I am not registered at flickr (and I haven't cared to do so). Anyway, Roja Dove has a detailed comparison of the "evolution" of the Chanel No. 5 flacon and stopper over the decades in his book "The Essence of Perfume".

    Oh. I can't attach anything to my posts for whatever reason, so this is the best I can do to show the pictures.

    There are online sources for the dimensions of the bottle over the years, so what I did was take pictures of my bottle next to the ones in the illustrations for comparison.

    I'm 99% sure it's from the 1924 - 1951 era(I'm suspecting 1943)
