Matchabelli Perfume

PRINCE MATCHABELLI Perfume:  Organized in 1926 by Prince Georges Matchabelli, of Italian background. He and his wife managed the business in New York until 1936 when it was sold. The product name was continued and remains a favorite today. We can discover no clue as to when the examples found in Marigold C.G. were produced.

Having grown up during the 1940s, we can recall various lovely perfume atomizers in the various department stores. It was a thrill to receive one for a birthday or Christmas gift.

Many of the spray mechanisms used in these perfume atomizers were patented by Thomas DeVilbiss of Toledo, Ohio in 1922. Most of the bottles were of non-iridized glass, with some having been produced in Europe.

Dean & Diane Fry, Feb. 2014

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders.
Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility,
For “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God,
That He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil
walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings
 are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
(1 Peter 5:5-9)
