Product Description

It wasn't just the ladies who wanted to smell nice:)
This is a superb, masculine "Russian cologne" label from the turn of the century. The design is very art nouveau with all the gold leaf flourishes and as the label itself testifies: a gold medal winner at the Paris expo in 1900!
I've included a scan of the back to show how deeply it is embossed. The label measures about 3.75 by 4.25. There is a slight crease at the top left corner and one pin hole which I can't fathom why anyone would tack this beauty on a wall?? Between the white edging and the reflective gold leaf, I have found it near impossible to get a scan or photo that shows the true hues of this image: a medium olive green with yellow undertones.
