Painters' Pallet Solid On Ebay.
Posted 14 October 2005 - 01:23 PM
so it is still a rarity and I have no doubt in my mind that it is genuine.
If I was prepared to spend alot of $$$$$$$$ right now, I would also like the Artists Palette . Sorry KK, but this is a personal feeling....

However it would not surprise me if EL would have someone bidding on it for them. They have been known to buy solids in the past off of ebay as originally they did not keep the solids in their archives.

I am curious about this Painters Pallet as I think it is very pretty. If is stamped Estee Lauder inside, then isn't it a "real" compact?

CONGRADULATIONS to Liliane for winning the Painter's Palette( and at a very good price I might add).
I know it is a very hard Prototype to get and very desirable.
It was also one of Bob Contes favorite designs and he was sorry EL didn't produce it for the retail stores.
Prototypes have been discussed many times here on the board and there are different opinions about buying them. IMHO if you know it is a REAL prototype , which means it was presented to EL for their consideration but never made for the retail stores, and you like it and the price stays reasonable ( under $4000) then great.
Prototypes should not be confused with unfinished ( gold only) or empty or broken/missing parts solids. They are completely finished except for having perfume.
Prototypes are in a class of their own and rare .
As we now know the White/Gold 2005 dragon is waiting to appear . We know there is at least one. Happy Hunting.
Ann ( still waiting to find the black cowboy hat).

Thanks a lot Ann - and best thanks Ann for your detailed explanations - that's exactly that way!!!
I am very pleased that I won this solid (for a reasonable price). Today a desire became true - I won a preferential, long desired piece!!!
There are no more many solids missing in my collection - but in reality I have only like three prototypes.
For the future I wish myself for my collection some more prototypes (like for example we know there is the "Magic Dragon" from 1999 in gold, or silver, red, or black each with white crystales and naturally the white/gold "Dragon" from 2005 ). There are still some more for which I would pay "good money", simply because I would like to have these "Solid-Prototypes"!
In incomplete and defective solids I am absolutely not interested!!!
Have a great Weekend,
Liliane (hoping for more prototypes)

I am very happy for you. I hope the other prototypes end up in your collection.

I just checked out the link on the first post. This solid is so cute! I thought it would be an unfinished gold one.
Thanks for explaining, Ann. It is a rare piece.
And CONGRATULATIONS!!Liliane. You won the prize. It is so cute and colorful. I remember discussing this piece before.
