Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

22kt Gold Filigree Vanity Items from 1940s Catalog Pages

The items shown in the following advertisement pages from 1940 and 1941 N. Shure catalogs, are made up of 22kt gold over white metal filigree. The various perfume bottles and the trays I have had in the past. Some of the filigree has glass jewels. I am pretty sure these were made in the USA to imitate the more expensive items that were made in Czechoslovakia and Austria, but were unable to be imported due to WWII. From experience, I know that the metal is very soft and easy to break, I believe it is lead.
