A very nice earlier vintage French perfume box for Le Tabac Blond parfum, made by
Caron in Paris, France.This fragrance, made by Caron founder Ernest Daltroff, was
originally launched in 1919. It was marketed as subtly ambiguous and androgynous,
creating quite a following with flapper era women celebrating feminine liberation
and still remains quite desired, collectible and valuable today.The flacon for this
unusual perfume was designed by Felicie Vanpouille and was made by Baccarat. I am
estimating by the size of this box that it likely held the smaller, apx. 1 ounce
flacon of parfum extrait. Please see box exterior and interior measurements above.
From what I gather via a general web search, the overall box design and graphics
changed very little from the teens to mid century at least, and I estimate this box
dates to approximately the 1930s, possible slightly later.So if you have a bottle
and are looking for a box to increase the value of your collectible, which this particular
fragrance is amazingly sought after and quite valuable, here is an extremely nice
example. Due to the nature of ephemera good condition original antique and vintage
cologne and perfume boxes are becoming harder to find.This box is in overall extremely
good, very sound condition, with only some small light smudges to exterior. If you
look closely at above images you may be able to detect a small smudge at lower left
and upper right front, plus a tiny round and fairly light mark at apx. 11 o'clock
upper back. Interior remains very nice with only a couple light, faint stains; look
closely at upper interior, apx. 11 - 12 o’clock. Box hinge at left side works well,
seemingly much as original. Good, sturdy example, with bright graphics. Hint of
fragrance remains. Please view images above.Please note this offering is for the
box only, and does not include the 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.
