A gorgeous very large Maxim's de Paris Large Glass Factice or Dummy Perfume Bottle. A Factice (pronounced fack-teece) is a perfume trade mark. These bottles were used as an advertising store display by the many perfume companies and mainly found in up scale department stores. The bottles are exact replicas of the normal size fragrance bottles. Sometimes they were and other times, the fragrance representatives would just give them away to the employees at the store.
I just happen to be at the right place at the right time in the late 70's and early 80's and received many lovely bottles. This bottle has always been one of my favorite bottles because of the style and colors. Maxim's de Paris bottle is a heavy bottle made with black glass. Gold design on the front. There is a red plastic top.
I have never removed the top from this bottle but can feel that it is about 1/2 full of colored water. A gold tassel is around the neck of the bottle.The bottom of the bottle is marked and reads, Maxim's de Paris, bottle made in France. It is a heavy piece and measures approx. 11.75" high by about 11" wide. The depth is about 3 wide. Without any packing, it will require extra packing, it weighs almost 7 pounds. No damage is noted on the bottle. A few light scratches on the bottom from picking up and putting the bottle back down. A truly lovely piece to add to your home for display. Would also make a nice display bottle for a store. Please feel free to view my shop for many lovely items. Most of my items are vintage in nature and I have had for years.
