Vintage Guerlain Shalimar French Talcum Talc Powder, Frosted Bottle, Lyre Flacon, Nice Label & Revenue Stamp
Vintage Guerlain Shalimar French Talcum Talc Powder, Frosted Bottle, Lyre Flacon, Nice Label & Revenue Stamp
Vintage Guerlain Shalimar French Talcum Talc Powder, Frosted Bottle, Lyre Flacon, Nice Label & Revenue Stamp

Material:  Frosted Glass, Bakelite Cap, Metal Sifter
Perfume House:  Guerlain
Origin:  France
Size:  Height ~ apx 5 & 7/8 inches   Width ~ apx. 3 & 1/4 inches
Quantity:  1 bottle with lid

This lyre shaped bottle, first made in the early 1920's, is called the Lyre Flacon.
While the bottle was made for a number of years this particular example is an older flacon, 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.
Bottle label indicates talc fragrance is Shalimar, Guerlain, Paris.  Original Revenue Stamp is also present at lower back, along with another export sticker underfoot reading;
Guerlain, Fabrication Francaise, Reg US Pat. Off.
The bottle is in very nice vintage estate condition.  Careful examination revealed no chips, cracks, flecks or other problems to either bottle or screw on lid, which I believe may be Bakelite or similar early material.  There is a sunburst shaped metal sifter under the lid, which I overlooked photographing, but it is perfect.  While this bottle was obviously removed from it's box the talc was never used and I do not believe the lid had ever been opened until I un-screwed the cap to check contents.  This bottle is completely full, clear up to almost touching the sifter.  Inside lid and bottle neck are both spotlessly clean.
The paper label is the old, original style and it remains quite nice, with just a few very tiny, light scratches to upper right, near the letters LA in Guerlain and at the letters PA in Paris, as can be seen in the close up, extremely high resolution image.  The desirable Revenue Stamp also remains in place at lower back.  It is a little faded, but intact and legible.   Export sticker underneath appears like new, with bright vibrant colors and legible print.
Overall an exceptionally nice, Flapper era, collectible large Guerlain talcum powder flacon.
We also have another Shalimar bottle, the Eau de Toilette
Goutte Flacon, available.  See link on lower left side bar.

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