Large Older Vintage Guerlain Shalimar French Perfume Bottle, Frosted Stopper, Goutte Flacon, Nice Label & Revenue Stamp

Material:  Clear & Frosted Glass
Glass Maker:  Pochet et du Courval
Perfume House:  Guerlain
Origin:  France
Size:  Height ~ apx 6 & 5/8 inches,     Width ~ apx. 4 inches
Quantity:  1 bottle with stopper

This oval or tear dropped shaped bottle, first made for Guerlain fragrances in the early 1920's, is called the Goutte Flacon.   It was made by several noted glass works, including Baccarat and I believe this bottle was likely manufactured by the French glasshouse Pochet et du Courval.
The bottle was made for a number of years and held various fragrances.  This particular bottle is an older example, dating to the 1920's or 1930's, as it features the old style label, as well as
Guerlain and Made In France information impressed on bottle base, which I understand was discontinued in the 40's.
Perfume bottle label indicates fragrance is
Shalimar Eau de Toilette, Guerlain, 168 Champs - Elysees Paris.  Original Revenue Stamp is also present at base, along with another sticker reading; 88 % Alcoolique.
The bottle is in very nice vintage estate condition.  Careful examination revealed no chips, cracks, flecks or other problems to either bottle or stopper.  The paper label is the old, original style, featuring the two dolphins known as Etiquette Dolphin.  It remains quite nice, with just a very tiny, minor rub to upper right, as can be seen in the close up image.  The desirable Revenue Stamp also remains in place at base.  It is a little loose, but intact and readable.  Bottle stopper is the original frosted and ground example,  purportedly fashioned in the likeness of two cockle shells.   It seems to be firmly in place.  Once noted, I did not further try to remove it.  There is no evidence of  old perfume, etc.,  built up around the bottle neck, so it is likely stopper can be removed, if desired, however I will leave that choice to buyer.  While I was unable to remove stopper to check for damage, it is clearly visible through the neck of bottle and I note no chips, cracks, or other issues.
Overall an exceptionally nice, Flapper era, collectible large Guerlain perfume flacon.
We have another Guerlain bottle available; the
Lyre Flacon.  See link on left sidebar.

Brief history:   Guerlain, founded in Paris in 1828, is one of the oldest perfume houses in the world.  The fragrance Shalimar was created by Master Perfumer Jacques Guerlain in 1925, as a tribute to the love of Emperor Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal, who built the Taj Mahal in India in her memory and honor.  Shalimar is named after Mumtaz's favorite garden The Garden Of Shalimar.

PLEASE NOTE:  The US Post Office will not deliver any parcel that appears to contain a leaking liquid, so when we ship containers filled with liquid it is our policy to secure stopper with tape, (avoiding paper labels) place bottle in a zip lock type plastic bag, wrap extremely well with lots of bubble wrap and peanuts and usual double box, to ensure safe, undamaged receipt.
