Which Solids Are Ivory Series?
Posted 24 June 2004 - 05:10 PM
MOB is mother of pearl. There is a matching powder compact on ebay 2252185609 . The powder compact is fairly common and EL reissued it several times.
The solid is smaller and I believe Brigitte has some in different colors maybe she can put on here.
An eye shadow was also made in this design so it is best to buy MIB with label saying solid perfume.

I'm enjoying this chat, too. It's very enlightening. The Old English Fair is on page 44 of Roselyn's book "goldtone box green enamel lid centered with a portrait of a woman, copy of an eighteenth century English scent box." This solid has always appealed to me, but have never seen it anywhere (including Ebay). There is no photo in Lisa's database, and Brigitte at one time had it listed on her "Wish List." So I'm wondering if anyone out there has it or knows why it is so rare?

There are some on the list that are not in Roselyn's book.
Someday when we have time those of us with "lists "should get together and do a master list .
EL has been promising one is why we have not done it before.
One problem with the list is some solids are listed by fragrance so you may have the same solid listed 3 times with the only difference being the fragrance.
In the 70's catagory on my list it has :
1972--Azuree-- Fragrance Sphere Pomander Necklace.
It is the only one on the page that has no discription. ?????????
Old English Fair on my list:
1973--Estee-- Old English Fair- Various copies of 18th century English scent boxes filled with your choice of Y-D or Estee solid perfume.
Then it is listed again with the same imformation only with Y-D as the fraqrance.
It is the only one on my list that doesn't have a price in the price box. Don't know if that means they didn't retail it.
An interesting side note--- My list shows which solids were GWP and what dept store to get it.
Example-Starshell Necklace- Marshall Fields w/ purchase of $6 or more.

The mother of pearl powder compact is one of my favorites, and had no idea there is a solid to match. Would love to see some photos. Brigitte, do you have some photos you could share with us?
Posted 24 June 2004 - 05:58 PM
Brigitte has the blue one on her page under wishlist- solids I don't have.
If Ken was here I would put on a photo of mine. If one doesn't show up on here before Ken gets back we will add it to the data base.
We did have the photo of the MOB on here, the two together but I can't find it. It was when we were putting on matching solids to powder compacts.

If there is any interest maybe we can do the powder matching thing again.
Do an update . Surely Ken or Jack can find the old photos and I can just add to them.

I remember when you had posted your photos of matching solids and powder compacts. The photos were wonderful! It would be really nice if Jack could set up another Yellow Tab that reads MATCHING SOLIDS & POWDERS. Than we could easily view your photos on this topic.
Jack - If it's possible there is space for another Yellow Tab beside Members Photos.

Yes, this is a very good suggestion, however Jack is always sooo busy it is hard for him being he is always busy. It will however be added to his "to do list"

here comes the different versions of the MOTHER OF PEARLS. I don't know the proper name of these solids, but they all have a label which says:
They are not marked inside the box, but as you can see on the 2 original packing boxes they are Est»e Lauder.
As far as it concerns the description of the 1972 Azuree Fragrance Sphere Pomander Necklace I have a description which says:
A round hanging pomander of marbeled brown and gold ceramic w/gold-hued attachments.
I suppose it's the same as the Perfumed Pomander Necklace (Youth-Dew) from 1972
I do have a database for the Powder Compacts, but unfortunately can't publish it. Most of the pics are taken by myself but some are "stolen" out of brochures or from eBay sellers and of course some are still missing. Therefore at the moment I can only use it for my proper use. I had a Lauder list of the Powder Compacts with only the description and some times it's very difficult to ad the pics to the description as I don't always understand what the description really means (maybe I wouldn't even understand if it were written in German ).
A long time ago I contacted one of our members but unfortunately got no response. So if someone of you is a powder compact collector and is willing to be of help maybe we could get in touch and complete the database with "not stolen" pics and then publish the whole databese.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Have a wonderful day

These are exquisite ... thanks so much for sharing. I especially like the green enamel solid, and is that the matching powder compact with it in the box? Beautiful!!! I have a couple of the eyeshadows that match the turquoise sachet, but they're in a metal compact rather than mother of pearl.

I found them! I added a new topic for this and you can add anything new you might have. Let me know if I mssed a bunch and I can go back and look some more.
