Unrecorded 5" high chunky Delcroix London cobalt pontilled perfumers chemist bottle ('Pudre Unique' translates to Unique Powder). Purchased at the Elsecar show, it had a thick coating of varnish but now looks much better after stripping it off. As soon as I arrived home I googled the name & found an amazingly detailed original 1826 trade advert for sale on an internet antiquarian print site for Delcroix's products (including his bears grease) & informing the public of a change of address to 158 New Bond Street. Also as an added bonus it actually lists this bottle's contents in the small print ! Quote '.........where may likewise be obtained: His Poudre Subtil, for removing superfluous hair. Poudre Unique for dying the Hair'. Only £15, so it makes a great 'go-with' to the bottle.















Wanted --- any unusual items from Kent & the South East, including advertising, early stoneware, & bottles (of course!).  Also rare patent poisons, early pontilled medicines, & rare burst lip/teakettle inks.

Hi John

Your Ad comes from the 1826 Cheltenham Directory, There is also an interesting advert for Atkinsons bears grease in it when they were at 44 Gerrard Street.

 
 
Wanted Bears Grease & Pictorial Pot Lids

Many thanks for your kind comments.  Interesting to note that my advert states that the bears grease is put in pots with Delcroix's name on.  I don't know of any pots printed or hand painted with his name, so probably they took applied paper labels.  It would be nice if a copy of the other advert mentioning Atkinson's could be posted on the forum.

:)

Afraid I am going to have to disapoint you ladies, I cannot see how I can scan it without risk of damaging the book.

Howsabout a good photograph?... should be easy to read the advert in a photo if the eye can see it.

No matter whether this is rated by rarity, or by appearance or by purchase price, this is absolutely fantastic. Staggering
