I have no doubt that they exist, but they’re not common enough for me to have seen them.
The Pochet ones seem, comparatively speaking, to be more common, and I think I may have come across a few of their “bat” bottles, usually from things that are estimated to be 1960s or 1970s in age.
I’ll also provide you with links to various guides or articles that go through the minutiae and specifics of the many types of Shalimar bottles over the decades for you to read on your own time.
Three tombs dated to the Ptolemaic Period, more than 2,000 years ago, have been discovered in the Nile Valley, the Egyptian antiquities ministry said on Wednesday. Another tomb contains two chambers, one with six burial holes, including one for a child. His dynasty would rule Egypt for over three centuries: male rulers took the soubriquet Ptolemy, while the queens tended to be named Arsinoe, Berenice and, famously, Cleopatra.
The discovery was made in an area called al-Kamin al-Sahrawi, south of Cairo. Excavation on a third tomb is still underway, the ministry stated. Your comment was successfully submitted and will be published in accordance with site policy.
A burial shaft carved out of the bedrock in one of the tombs leads to a chamber where four sarcophagi with anthropoid lids, containing two women and two men, were found. when the Roman general Ptolemy assumed the title of King, dubbing himself Ptolemy I Soter, i.e., the Savior.
Trying to date vintage Shalimar and navigating e Bay to find a bottle of the version that you prefer might seem, at first glance, to be an exhausting, frustrating, and complicated ordeal.
For the most part, when it comes to the very old bottles of vintage Shalimar, one is basically using deductive reasoning to draw imprecise inferences and conclusions from wholly circumstantial evidence.
So, if you’re hoping for a “hard and fast,” set rule on dating, there isn’t one.(I’ll talk about those other bottles in a moment.) Finally, the few bottles that I have seen from the two companies (again, in shapes other than the “bat” or the “urn”) look like they have very different glass than bottles manufactured by Baccarat.To my eye, none of them look like heavy crystal in the way that the Baccarat does. It also has a noticeable heft, thickness, and weight that instantly stands out.(More on the base marks much later.) The situation with Cristal Romesnil and Pochet et du Courval is interesting.I’ve read that Cristal Romesnil made some Shalimar “bat” parfum bottles as early as the 1920s, but I can’t say that I’ve come across anything they’ve made at bottle bearing a sign that it was made by CR.With that word of caution, let’s move onto the specifics.
