I am interested in any information on this pen set.
The inside top of the case reads:
Perfumed Writing Pens
Arpege & Chanel No.5
14 KT Gold
Some of the questions I have are: (does anyone know)
When they were made?
How many sets were made?
Were they made for any special occasion?
Any other information would be appreciated!
I know that the perfumes are manufactured by different companies, so am interested in how it came to be that two (possibly competitors) would have their number one product advertised together.
I know that" Arpege" is a 1927 perfume by Lanvin. Along with Coco Chanel's "Chanel No. 5" and Patou's "Joy", it is one of the three best known perfumes in the world.
Chanel No. 5 is the first perfume launched by Parisian couturier Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel (in 1920) and is considered by most as the world's most famous perfume.
The French government reports that a bottle of Chanel No. 5 is sold every thirty seconds and generates sales of $100 million a year. It was developed by Russian-French chemist and perfumer Ernest Beaux.
These are unused pens in the original case.
Please share any information!
