Vintage Evans Perfume Holder Imperial Egg White Cloisonne & Gold Ormolu Rare:
"EVANS IS ELEGANCE" This Evans vintage 2 bottle perfume holder is shaped like an imperial Russian egg. It is made of white cloisonné enamel on brass and trimmed with French gold ormolu. (Quite scarce! I have not seen another white one.) The two color gold ormolu is beautifully worked and chased. The top ormolu decoration holds a pearl. This perfume caddy is complete with its original 2 perfume bottles and with their original dauber stoppers. The perfume stoppers have a raised C on their tops. (Perhaps designating that they were made to hold perfume from the Coty Perfume Co.). These perfume holders were made by the Evans Lighter & Accessories Company and this one considering the enamel work and the exquisite bi-color gold ormolu and etching was their "top of the line". Evans operated from 1922 to 1960 and was based in North Attleborough Massachusetts USA. (For a short history of the Evans Company please see: "Evans/The Powder Keg Ignites" ; See also the fine collection at www.vintage Evans & classic accessories)Condition: This one is near mint. It has a small rub on the cloisonné near the top of the lid. I have not washed the perfume bottles and have left the original scent of the perfume. (see photo#8. This small flaw is considered in the pricing)Size: 5" tall and 3" in diameter.Shipping: all delicate items are triple wrapped, double boxed, tracked and insured.
