Guest Book

Based on Mae West's dressmaker's mannequin, this iconic glass perfume flacon for "Shocking" was designed by Leonor Fini, who worked for Elsa Schiaparelli. It was produced in four sizes; this 4" example is the largest. It is an unopened glass bottle, nearly half full, decorated with plastic flowers, a gold cap, and a blue paper tape measure displaying the words "Shocking" and "Schiaparelli" that serves as the label. You will also find "Schiaparelli France" embossed on the bottom of the glass bottle. This dainty glass torso is presented in a sweet glass dome case with lace fringe enameled on its exterior. Please note that one flower petal is broken. The original hot pink box, also made in France, is tattered but still a special find together with this wonderful perfume dating to 1936!
