The round, gold-edged, two-tiered robins egg blue platform base portion of the presentation box still remains intact and is in excellent condition with no perfume leakage or staining. There is an extremely tiny area of missing paper on the lower outer rim (see photo). The bottle is still affixed to the base, as it was originally. There are no ghastly odors of any kind emanating from either the paper base or bottle.The top, cone-shaped snuffer portion of the presentation box is missing. The bottle itself measures approximately four inches tall (exposed base of bottle to tip of stopper). With the blue round paper base included, this item stands at about 4.5 inches.
The 22k gold brushwork (both on the glass and stopper) is mostly intact with only a bit of loss/rub (see photos). The original cording twine is still wrapped around the stoppers neck (undone but intact).
This clear, dainty candlestick-shaped bottle is in fabulous condition for its age with no glass sickness. The red glass flame stopper has no chips, flaking or other issues. I have not attempted to remove the stopper from the bottle, so it may or may not be frozen. The shiny gold paper foil label is completely intact with no tears or missing portions.
This is extremely rare as most of these labels are either extensively damaged or missing. All photos were taken at 40x magnification to best showcase overall item condition.
