The bottle is marked on the bottom with the word Coty the number 24 and the word FRANCE
The Original Gold Label is intact and reads " Chypre de Coty" in reference to the island of Cyprus birthplace to Venus the Legendary Goddesss of Love. The Original twisted copper wire is still at the neck of the bottle as well the original decorative glass stopper is in place.

The neck of the bottle still has the Coty perfume fragrance which is heavenly !

The Hinge along the left side is intact and in working order.
The press clasp works beautifully and the hinged center works well too.

Below is a bit of history on Coty and Laliques' collaboration in designing the bottle and label for Coty perfume.

******************************************************************


Coty was both a talented perfumer and a brilliant marketer. He was the first to recognize that an attractive bottle was essential to a perfume's success. Though La Rose came in a Baccarat bottle, Coty's most famous collaboration was with the great ceramist and jeweler René Lalique. Lalique designed the bottles for Coty's early scents, such as Ambre Antique and L'Origan, which became bestsellers. He also designed the labels for Coty perfume, which were printed on a gold background with raised lettering.[3] Lalique's designs for Coty were in the Art Nouveau style that was prevalent in the period, and incorporated classic Art Nouveau themes such as nature, flowers, and female figures.[4] :261

Besides pioneering the concept of bottle design, Coty was responsible for making perfume available to a mass market. Before Coty, perfume was considered a luxury item, affordable only to the very rich. Coty was the first to offer perfumes at many price points. His expensive perfumes, in their Lalique and Baccarat bottles, were aimed at the luxury market, but he also sold perfume in smaller, plainer bottles affordable to middle and working-class women.[5] Coty perfume bottles, though mass produced, were carefully designed to convey an image of luxury and prestige.[4] Coty also invented the idea of a fragrance set, a gift box containing identically scented items, such as a perfume and matching powder, soap, cream, and cosmetics.[2]:24
