Trompe l’orange

From Les Parfums De Marcy, this trompe l’oeil orange contained 8 glass perfume bottles. The orange-section shaped bottles were stored upside-down to conceal their caps.

"…the trompe l’oeil perfume bottle did double duty as a visual representation of the seductive, illusory, and ephemeral nature of perfume, and of those heady, fragile, never-to-be-repeated decades." Art & Antiques Associates, 1997
