New listings for "empty" solids and compacts
Posted 17 October 2003 - 11:04 AM
On Oct. 16th, the Corday Ivory Horse compact (see photo on page 2 of this topic) sold on E-Bay for $306.50! Even non EL solids are getting up there in price.
Does Corday put out new solids every year like Estee Lauder? Is there a Corday Solid Perfume Compact book? Do you know how long Corday has been doing solids?

Corday was bought out by Max Factor in the 70's, and MF continues to use some of the Corday molds for a while. That is why you may find a Corday solid case with a Max Factor label.
Not sure when MF quit making solids but their hay day was in the 70's & early 80's.
Some of your more expensive fragrances lines still put out a solid but usually one a year.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the information on Corday. I didn't know they were bought out by Max Factor. That explains why I only see a few Corday's come up for sale on E-Bay. You are very knowledgeable on solids. I appreciate you sharing your info with all of us.
Have a nice evening.

You are always so helpful regarding all the solids. Corday and Max Factor really produced some nice solids during the earlier years. Do you agree that some of them were extremely good? The Corday horse is one example but there were several others: the jack-in-the-box and the rocking horse are great examples of their classic solids and make the EL versions look sort of "gaudy". The birds nest, easter egg basket, watering can, foot stool and a few others are absolutely pefect. Some of these are not especially rare but are certainly a must for a collector of other solids.
I am so in awe of the photos that you and Ken are putting up for us to enjoy! You two are the BEST!

If I am not mistaken this solid necklace is Max Factor and is called Khara (I think) I also believe it goes for around $10-$20 on ebay.

Meanwhile, I was not familiar with this and only remembered what the person at the fair told me!
It looked very pretty and in good condition. She mentioned that it was an old one. I took the picture so that I could check it out later!
So now I have passed it on to you all, the experts.

Perhaps they changed? I have no idea, I have been to Lauder's Company Store but I can only get a discount if I go with someone that works for Lauder and have them buy what I want for me. Even then, there is a limit of 2 items (whether it's a Solid, or any other product).
My Mom bought a package of Prototypes from one of her Neighbors (Lauder fired him because he became ill with Lung Cancer) and my Mom felt so bad for him and his family. He now has a huge lawsuit against Lauder, remember the movie Philadelphia with Tom Hanks?
My Mom started selling on Ebay and any money she made from the Prototypes went to this man to help him. I hope she starts selling again for herself (her idea was to sell Clothing which she did sell some items), but my Dad became very ill and we all hope he is out of the Hospital any day now.
By the way, I think it's horrible that you were investigated, it's your money and you have a right to spend it however you wish.

Here I am again!
As my English is too bad I don't like to talk much here!
Hope you will get some good chocolate in the US also
Take care and best regards from Switzerland

Your mother sounds like a VERY giving person - someone who uses their ideas and resources to help others!
What an inspiration she must be!
Thanks for sharing!
