Count these among the myriad of vintage things I love: Old cosmetic and perfume advertisements, labels, bottles, containers, etc. I have had this bottle, below, for many years. I like the size and shape of the bottle, and especially the label. I'm not even 100% certain that the label is authentic, but I don't mind because it's lovely. And I imagine the scent of the lotion must have been like that of the original Jergens - a scent I have always loved.
And I was lucky that this vintage advertisement for Colgate compacts, complete with monogram examples, fit perfectly into one of my nicest vintage frames. It was a bit too large for the scanner - but you can get the general idea.This large perfume label, below, wouldn't fit completely on my scanner bed, either. I haven't yet decided where would be the best place for it. Ideally I would affix it to the perfect thing - but what? If I had a cabinet door large enough, I'd consider having it in the "powder" room- but I don't.
My biggest problem with all my collecting is never having enough space to adequately display everything to my liking! ( A possible solution: Stop buying, and/or purge. Yeah, I'll have to try and work on that.)
