Vintage French Perfume Box Set with Handwritten Note – Antique Velvet Case & Fragrance Bottles from 1800s.

Discover a piece of history with this exquisite Antique French velvet box, housing three delicate perfume bottles from the late 1800s. Adorned in pale mauve velvet and lined with antique gold silk, this enchanting box exudes timeless elegance. The original closure still graces each bottle, with two still retaining their silk ribbons delicately tied around the necks.

Crafted by the renowned Parisian perfumery A. Agnel, these bottles once held concentrated scented essence for perfumed handkerchiefs. A handwritten note inside the box tells the touching story of this gift from parents to daughter, dated February 22, 1897, adding a personal and sentimental touch to its charm.

Measurements:
Box: 6 1/8″ x 4 1/4″ x 2 7/8″ (15.5 cm x 11 cm x 7.5 cm).

Condition:
This box is in excellent vintage condition, boasting a beautiful antique patina. While time has gently faded the mauve velvet, it has only added to its allure. The bottles remain intact, their gold labels partially faded yet still legible. The silk ribbons adorning the bottles show signs of fragility and wear, a testament to their age and history.

Additional History:
Parfumerie Agnel, established in 1858 by Alexandre Cesar Napoleon Agnel, was renowned for its fine fragrances, winning gold medals at the Paris exhibitions of 1900 and 1925. Their exquisite bottles were crafted by esteemed artisans such as Baccarat and Pochet et du Courval. Despite closing its doors in 1958, the legacy of Agnel perfumery lives on through timeless treasures like this one.
