    Default vintage/antique D'Orsay bottles.

    I've come across a set of 3 D'Orsay bottles. They are packaged in an decorative box/chest made of layers of cardboard and foil, with a barrel shaped lid. The bottles are about 70mm high by 40mm wide, and in an usual sort of ribbed hour glass design. The stopper appears to be glass as well, and a tiny ribbon is tied around the neck. The liquid is a bit syrupy, and one appears to have separated a bit. Based on a label in the box, the scents are Dandy, Milord, Mystere. There are few labels, but the box is labeled 'D'orcay', and has their stamp on the bottom. There is one tiny gold foil label for the Mystere. There is a loose label in the bottom of the packing box in french indicating that the coffret contains the 3 extracts, their names, etc. I have lots of photos which I could attach or put on a web site and reference if that helps. I've searched the web for hours and not found anything quite like them.

    TIA,
    JpS

    Thanx, but I'm really more looking for information about them and/or how to get them in the hands of someone who would enjoy/appreciate them, as I've already got way too many hobbies and collections!

    Ebay is the normal place.

    I'm sorry I missed this, they date to the 1940s, it's one of their early "treasure chest" presentations.

    This would have to be post-1932 as Milord was launched then.
