This is a 2oz sealed bottle of Carven "Ma Griffe" pure perfume in box.
Note that after much deliberation, I gently opened the top of the cellophane to reveal the bottle inside. The cellophane sealed box had no indication of size or concentration. However, I was very pleased to get a glimpse of this rare older formula pure perfume! It's in the iconic Ma Griffe bottle with the rectangular glass stopper, gold foil label, gold thread and wax seal around the neck, and the white/green threaded ribbon!
The bottle and box are in pristine condition. There is a batch inside the top of the box... M39 63. You will see photos before it was opened and the last photo shows the cellophane gently placed back around the top (The C sticker is no longer attached).
If you are like me, you have often wondered who owned these special classic perfumes that have been stored for decades sealed and unopened!
This one came from a large collection of vintage perfume from the West Hollywood estate of Ellen Corby who acted alongside Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina, James Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life, and Lucille Ball in I Love Lucy. She acted in hundreds of films and TV series from the 1930's to the 1990's including The Andy Griffith Show, Lassie, The Addams Family, The Beverly Hillbillies, Bonanza, Dennis The Menace, Hawaii Five-O, The Odd Couple and many many other series and films. However, she was best known for her role as Grandma Esther on the TV series The Walton's of which she was awarded 3 Emmy's for her work.
