Item/Description: Vintage ca. 1970s mint-in-box and oh-so-delightfully charming Coty “Frog Prince” from Coty Sweet Earth Earthenware Collection
***This precious “Prince of a Fellow” is a figural frog-shaped pomander container filled with Coty’s mountain greenery fragrance potpourri sachet chips, and he was cleverly created to serve the dual purpose of not only decoratively enhancing whatever room he is displayed in because of his figurine-statue shape and design (he is scrumptiously parfait-colored in hues of pastel peach melon with a dapper, cherry red accent-colored neck tie/necktie), but to also aromatically scent the room as well.
***Marketed as “He’s a Prince of a Guy”; “He’ll Leap into Your Heart”; and “Some day my Prince will come!”, Coty’s “Fragrant Frog” is “from a collection of earthenware pomanders, specially designed and hand-decorated for Sweet Earth. The fragrant chips, which are placed inside the pomanders, are another Sweet Earth innovation, Each chip is a piece of actual rock that has been saturated with fragrance oil to provide long-lasting fragrance pleasure. Place these lovable pomanders anywhere...on a desk, table, shelf, inside a dresser drawer. Their uses are unlimited and they are reusable, too!”
Age/Period: Vintage - ca. 1970s
Manufacturer/Identification/Markings: Original box reads “Coty Sweet Earth Earthenware”

Condition: Aesthetically, the frog figure is near mint, evincing no noted nicks, chips, cracks, breaks or repairs, albeit evincing a handful of surface soil marks. Although he still retains his original aroma chips, they no longer retain much of a scent, but since aroma chips are reusable, they can easily be refreshed with a new fragrance scent, or even swapped out with new scented potpourri!
