That Arlequinade bottle is fantastic- makes me wonder if Lloyd Wright saw this before designing the Sowden House

The Arlequinade bottle is beautiful. I can definitely see the similarity in the Frank Lloyd Wright Sowden House. I'd love to make a calendar of twelve perfume houses including the early Rosine's to the present. Unfortunately, the pictures, even if making a collage, have to be very large and finding them has been a problem. I adore perfume bottle art. Thanks for posting these gorgeous pictures.

Calendar- what a great idea! Did you manage to find the big enough pictures in the end?
I was browsing, drooling unsightly :-)

No, unfortunately enough pictures haven't been found. I have a Guerlain page and a Serge Lutens page. Only need 10 more. :-)

I wish some lord bestowed his lordly love on me and found me that flacon (full, no gone off). *sigh*

tmp00: Frank Lloyd Wright's last name is simply "Wright," not "Lloyd Wright"

- Lloyd Wright was Frank Lloyd Wright's son, also an architect.

Andrew Lloyd NoTalent has nothing to do with this discussion, but I always enjoy pointing out his complete lack of talent whereever I can!
