Additional Information: 
Obviously designed to complement the perfume of the same scent, as the stopper on the perfume bottle and the handle on the lid of the powder box are the same. This powder box is much rarer than the bottles which, because of the popularity of the fragrance, are readily available. Even rarer was a second powder box, shaped identically to this but having an etched colorless surface with the stars enameled cobalt blue.
