Additional Details

A beautiful design repeating a lady's profile and decorative rose trellis within diamond-panes. One of very few examples of Barbier's packaging illustration, this was likely done for Paul Poiret's perfume company, named after his daughter Rosine or possibly for the house of Paquin for whom he'd created designs.
