A vintage Yardley English Lavender gift set, probably a Christmas set. The set consists of a full-size tin of talc, 2 bars of lavender soap in paper wrappers and a wrapped cake of Compressed Lavender Blossom Sachet.
Box measures 8 1/2" x 5 3/4", the talcum tin measures 4 5/8" tall. Soaps are still intensely fragrant! The original purchase price sticker of $1.50 from Fay's Toiletries is on the underside of the talc.
All products appear unused. The set is sold as a collectible and not intended for actual use of the 60+ year old products.
Condition: The outer box is sturdy and clean, there is a split corner at back right, and the front corners show wear. Interior of box is clean with no damage but light discolorations at the bottom edges of the soap compartments. The outer band-wrapper around one soap has been opened, a dab of glue would reseal it. Slight discoloration on the sachet and one soap wrapper, as if the oils inside leached into the wrapper paper. Talc is near mint, with very slight wear to the finish at the top shoulder areas that touch/rub on the box.
Shipping: Shipped at actual cost, packed weight will be 1+ lb., $8.49 or less parcel post depending on your zone.
