Display set for 1996 metal verdigris perfume bottle

19 Mar

Since my 1996 metal verdigris perfume bottle became damaged I’ve been looking for a replacement and so far this is the best I’ve got.

It’s a display set featuring two factice bottles and a faux perfume cuff.

And here it is from the back, designed presumably so it can sit in a window and be viewed from two sides:Who else has display sets in their collection? Leave me a comment below.
