Here is a lovely vintage magazine advertisement for Mary Garden Perfume sold under the Rigaud label. The ad features a happy young couple bundled up for winter, standing outdoors on a snowy street. They have stopped to look into a large shop window and admire a display of Mary Garden perfumes and beauty products. The boxes and bottles of red, green, yellow and white form an attractive and colorful display on three store shelves. Some of the products on display are: perfume, nail polish, lipstick, rouge, cold cream and toilet soap. An illustration of Mary Garden is framed in a circular green shape above the scene. I learned from an online search that Mary Garden was an opera singer.

The ad is from a 1920 midwinter special edition of the Pictorial Review magazine.

You’re welcome Kimberly. I’m so glad you like it! 🙂
Thank you for publishing this photo. My husband found the bronze container with the two circular inserts today while metal detecting at an abandoned farm just outside of Dallas, TX. We could read the information on the outside of the container but didn’t know what it was. The other circular style seems more common but couldn’t find this style anywhere but this ad.
