A very nice earlier vintage French perfume box for Lavande de Valreas parfum, by Bienaime; c. 1930s to 1940s.

Robert Bienaime was a perfumer for Houbigant from the early 1900s to 1935 when he launched his own perfume house in Paris, France, which operated for only about 14 years, closing in 1949. Subsequently, examples of bottles, and especially original boxes (simply due to the nature of ephemera) are somewhat less commonly found than other antique and vintage fragrances.

So, if you have a cologne bottle and are looking for a box to increase the value of your collectible, here is a nice example.  This box would have held a flacon that measured just slightly less than 3 inches in height and 1 & 3/4 inches in width.  See measurements above.

It is in overall good, sound condition, with some expected fairly minor wear / rubs to corner edges, slightly more significant at upper right and lower left corners, where tiny paper loss has occurred, mainly to gold rope edge detail. Some small light, subtle stains / smudges to white interior.  Paper label to reverse remains very clean and legible. Box hinge at top works well, seemingly much as original.  Good, sturdy example, with bright colorful graphics.  Box front shows a flower vase overflowing with lovely floral blooms and foliage.  Hint of fragrance remains.  Please view images above.

Please note this offering is for the box only, and does not include a crystal flacon / bottle.  We purchased several earlier perfume box examples, all without the original bottles, and each is listed separately in this category on our site.
