Bottle is 5 1/2″ height and 1 1/2″ width at largest point. Bottle on base is marked in glass “Lalique”. Charles Frederick Worth was raised in Bourne, Lincolnshire. And apprenticed as a draper in London for six years at Swan & Edgars. Which specialized in fine wools and silks. In 1845, at the age of twenty-one, he set out to find his fortune in Paris. He became an assistant draper at Maison Gagelin. At 83 Rue Richelieu, where he was to remain for over ten years, rising to premier commis. Among his innovations was the introduction of ready-made muslin dress samples from which patrons could choose a style; he would then match the choice to an appropriate fabric. At Gagelin’s he met Marie Vernet. A demoiselle de maison who demonstrated the features of the cloths as draped on a moving woman. They were attracted to each other very early on, but owing to their limited incomes they did not marry until May 21, 1851. Maison Gagelin showed several of Worth’s designs there and although they caused great consternation in their departure from current fashion, Gagelin was awarded a gold medal for France. In 1858, Charles Worth established the custom of sewing branded labels into bespoke garments, created at Worths atelier in Paris, and would prepare a portfolio of dress designs which were shown on live models at the House of Worth. Clients would attend these shows, selecting a design, and specific colors and fabrics, so a duplicate garment could be tailor-made in Worths workshop. Worth combined his individual tailoring with a formula and standardization more characteristic of the ready-to-wear clothing industry today, which at that time was just beginning to emerge. His sons, Gaston-Lucien (18531924) and Jean-Philippe (18561926), took over their father’s business following his death in 1895 and succeeded in maintaining his high standards. In 1936, the House of Worth showed a first collection at 120 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. Under the direction of a fourth generation of the Worth family, Jacques and Roger. Worth was one of the first couture houses to extend its name to luxury perfume. In 1924 Les Parfums Worth launched the first fragrance, Dans La Nuit and recognising that presentation was crucial, Rene Lalique, the world renowned glass-maker, was commissioned to design the bottle. Worth’s grandson Jacques continued the tradition and with the perfumer Maurice Blanchet struck on the romantic notion of a fragrant love poem comprising five individual scents. Dans La Nuit (1924) Vers le Jours (1925) Sans Adieu (1929) Je Reviens (1932) Vers Toi (1934). Je Reviens remains the most famous and revered of Worth’s perfumes. Encapsulating the romance and elegance of Paris in the 1930s, the perfume reached formidable acclaim in the 1940s when it became a favoured gift from solder to their sweethearts. It is a truly timeless classic, transcending styles and trends. Je Reviens is currently being featured at the Harrods. Perfume Diaries Exhibition by Roja Dove.
