Here we have a RARE 1934 Vintage Yardley Fragrance Bottle with original box, "ropes," label, and lingering drops of scent. That's right, the name of this fragrance is "Fragrance," and Yardley produced it in 1934. It is a discontinued scent so how fabulous to find a box and bottle not only in such great shape but with remnants of the discontinued lovely scent still intact.

The box is amazing because the bottle rests in a small plastic "stage" held in place by two green "ropes," and the top of the box has a custom cut-out to allow the bluish-green cap of the perfume bottle to protrude, making a little green dome sticking out of the top of the box when fully closed. To release the bottle, you would have to push the green cords aside to release the little stage, then free the perfume bottle.

The size of the entire set when fully boxed is approximately 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 x 1 7/8 inches. The few remaining drops of scent in the bottle are delightful. The green plastic top is just beautiful, and the green, gold, white and black paper label, which says "Fragrance Yardley London," is completely intact. The box has foxing/age tanning throughout, but the green, yellow, and black graphics are still fabulous. The bottle has a tiny, added-on sticker indicating this perfume was produced by Yardley of London for distribution in the USA by their Fifth Avenue, New York division. The bottle and box both indicate the original contents was 1/3 ounce.

What a rare find! This will make a fabulous addition to your perfumes and cosmetics collectables.

I have had this in my collection of vintage perfumes and cosmetics for decades, but it is time for me to downsize to make some room. If you like vintage perfume, cologne, and cosmetics bottles and containers, keep an eye on my Etsy shop. I am posting my entire 40-year collection.

Thanks for looking!
