Whilst researching Houbigant I was amazed to discover that the firm was started by Jean-Francois Houbigant who opened a shop making perfumes. He used a hand painted picture of a basket of flowers to put over his shop. (The history of Houbigant can be found on their website - www.houbigant-parfum.com). This is an unopened box of powder - probably from the 1950s. Full details on my web site - price £24 ref: 3162 C46.
