The first, taller bottle with a stopper in the shape of a glass bevelled ball was designed for a cologne with the romantic name La Reine des Fleurs [French Queen of Flowers]. This is the very fragrance that kick-started the the well-known Parisian company. On the neck, there is a small strip of paper label with an inscription which, unfortunately, is illegible (the initials of a first name and a last name). A large paper label with the inscription “VÉRITABLE EAU DE COLOGNE / A La Reine des Fleurs / L.T. PIVER / 1774” has been preserved very well on the vessel’s body, making it possible to identify the brand and the name of the fragrance. Below, a colourful graphic showing a yellow cock with outspread wings and putti holding laurel branches flanking it, is visible. The composition is framed at the bottom by a flowery festoon with a ribbon. Under the graphic, there is an inscription “Marque Française / Déposée,” the initials and the last name: L.T. Piver, “Paris” and the address: “10, Boul d de Strasbourg.”
The second bottle has been designed in the shape of a rectangular decanter with bulges on the walls. The body smoothly turns into a wide neck, into which a bevelled glass stopper has been plugged. A strip of a paper label with the inscription “L.T. PIVER” has been situated on the neck. On the body, meanwhile - there is a paper label in the form of a cartouche with a white inscription “AVENTURINE / L.T. PIVER / PARIS” on a red background, framed by greenish ornaments with navy blue accents.
