For Sale
"I used to collect compacts very seriously but now I wish to sell them, along with other vanity items, vanity sets, perfume bottles, perfume advertising.  
Other items: lighters, watches, brooches, tins (huge collection too) are also available and books on the subject. 
I think the best way to do this is for people to come down and view them.  I live in Brighton"

• Two counter displays for Chanel (No. 5 & Coco)  Both are in excellent condition and both contain 2 bottles and a box. Coco measures 15" x 16"  and No. 5 measures 15" x 9".
The member is looking for £85 for each of these.

• A counter display (no bottles or boxes) for Christian Lacroix, probably of the 1930s era.  This measures 13" x 14". Guide price £35. (right)

• A very heavy cut glass Houbigant "Presence" factice measuring 11" x 6" (empty). Looking for £75.

The first set of Worcester porcelain bottles is gilded but the second set of bottles comes in dark blue, medium brown and rose red (the latter shown here). I’ve only seen them in pictures but would love to add all three of them to my collection.
Many thanks."
