“Perfume Bottles: From Design Table to Dressing Table”
until February 1, 2008

 

 

This exhibition features more than 30 items from the Rakow Research Library’s special collection of drawings, rare books, catalogs, and advertisements. Tracing the story of the perfume bottle from design and concept to the marketing and selling of the final product, the exhibition will include original design drawings by Frederick Carder and René Lalique, perfume advertisements from the 19th century through the 1950s, trade catalogues (including an early Avon catalogue from the days when the company was the California Perfume Company), books of perfume bottle labels, and even a scratch-and-sniff book on perfume.
