Re the boxes and their relevance, Carole, I have here at home an item which was given to us at the time of the Wedding between Prince Charles and Diana. It is a large china/porcelaine bell with their picture on the front and contains alcohol. I chucked the box as it was taking up room not realising that the box added value ( this was before I became a collector of solid perfumes). I disocvered that this Bell with the box sells for over Sterling £700. Without the box?????? Less!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />
I think that might answer the question of the value of boxes! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> Not that it would add that much to one of the solids……..but who knows!!!
