Perfume containers have always been important, from both practical and artistic perspectives. The first bottles were made from alabaster and stone, gradually being replaced by glass, gold and other precious materials. The big fashion houses entered the perfume industry in the 1920s, placing a strong emphasis on the appearance of the bottles. A factice is a decorative bottle used in retailers’ displays, and these items are now in great demand among collectors. In this themed auction, we will be selling a collection of beautiful early 20th century factices!
