According to my opinion, as EL gives the empty box they just put any 5 items into the box, just to show how it looks.

Here what was written on the IPBA page:

At Harrods, it was sold with a set of 5 solids for approximately £1,000 (or approximately $1,800 USD). The 5 solids sold originally in the box are

Beautiful Harrods Palace,
Beautiful Harrods Teddy Bear,
Beyond Paradise Double Decker Bus,
Pleasures Clock Tower and the
White Linen World Traveler.

The box will be raffled empty, for some very lucky IPBA member to fill.

The picture, above, shows the box open with its removable upper tray. (The raffle prize does not include any perfumes!) There is a small "EL" packet in the tray that contains the key. The plaque in the lid reads: "Est»e Lauder Collectors Series No. 6/55." In this photo the fitted outer box made of heavy material and padded all over inside is pictured in back of the box itself.

This large, heavy box is 22? inches long, 5? inches wide, and 7 inches deep. It is made of lacquer, dark blue (of course) and can be locked

IPBA RAFFLE

This is the world traveler

Hello to you all........

Have just been catching up on your posts and would mention that I actually
saw the box which is being raffled when it was on display in Harrods. Brigitte has mentioned the solids which were in the box and the ship was definitely not
included! Where the ship comes from, beats me, but I think perhaps some
items were placed in the box just to give an idea... cool.gif

I have not heard of an exclusive SHIP release but there again, I have not been to Harrods lately but am sure we would have received a flyer had there been one!
If not, no doubt they would have mailed them to the Collectors in the States!

I wish all of you a wonderful time in Atlanta.

Our U.K Chapter AGM is next Saturday, 14th April. If anyone in this part of the world would like to join, it should be a fun and informative day. Hope to see you there!!!!!! smile.gif

Hi everyone! Greetings from Atlanta! The convention has been great, not enough solidperfume.com friends however!! I have met up with wonderful old friends and made some new ones, and it was wonderful to see Allison from Harrods here. Estee Lauder did there presentation yesterday and we saw pictures of the new solids and compacts. Today we will hopefully get to see them in person. The Jay Strongwater Foo Dog and Bonsai Tree look pretty special! There is also the cutest little airplane. Will post more when I am home early in the week.

[FONT=Courier][SIZE=7][COLOR=blue]Thanks Woody, we can always rely on you cool.gif
I am so sorry I couldn't make it this year but I had committed to work the elections over here at the same time ph34r.gif Turns out I should have been committed - they were a shambles. Oh well, not my fault, I did my best.
Can't wait to see the photos and maybe hear more about the fun you all had.

Hi everyone! I am back home. It was a very nice convention, but we needed more solidperfume.com people there! Phyllis took some great pics. I don't have time to get them all up now. Will post in groups as I have time. I just posted the 2007 Harrods items which are as follows:

Beautiful Harrods Christmas Teddy 150 BP
Pleasures Tube to Harrods Sign 200 BP
Beyond Paradise Harrods Shopper 150 BP
Harrods High Tea 200 BP

I hope the exchange rate goes down before these hit the store (and my credit card), as right now the prices will be about double US Dollars wacko.gif

Also posted the new Jay Strongwater solids:

Pure White Linen Magnificent Bonsai $300
Intuition Magical Foo Dog $350
Beautiful Glorious Gramophone $325

Will post more as soon as I can.

Woody


P.S. Had to list my personal favorite: Beyond Paradise Precious Plane. $300
It's fabulous!
