Perfume Flacon And Sculpture Of Lanvin Logo For Bal Masque Perfume, L’Ame Perdue (Lost Soul)

This is a Perfume Flacon and Sculpture of Lanvin Logo for Bal Masque Perfume.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Anonymous as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.

Its medium is flacon: molded glass; sculpture: gilded bronze.

Although the flacon for the Bal Masque perfume was designed by Armand-Albert Rateau in 1923, the Lanvin logo was drawn in about 1929 by Paul Iribe after a 1907 photograph showing Jeanne Lanvin and her daughter Marguerite dressed for a masked costume ball, or Ball Masque, as the perfume’s name indicates. With the logo, Iribe created a striking sculptural form for a fashion house that, like most top names, also produced a famous perfume.
