One of our readers recently inherited a very interesting item as part of his mother’s estate. A very special porcelain Cognac bottle from Camus.
(If you also have a bottle you would like to submit, please use our form)
It comes in a white cardboard box, which contains a velvety blue card box inside. Opening this up reveals a blue ”bottle” of cognac in the shape of a book with a spare Napoleon hat ”stopper” for when it is opened. It is still sealed and not a drop has been touched.
Its has lettering on it describing it as: Camus Napoleon Cognac, Bi-Centenaire de L’Empereur 1769-1969
Searching for an item like this on the web brings up a couple of references to it on the web that its porcelain with gold leaf lettering/imageing and was a limited edition produced to celebrate Napoleons bicentennial.
The bottle also reads Production Limitée Reservée a Camus Cognac: Model Déposé. And it comes from Porcelaine Limoges Castel France.
If any of the visitors can give a bit more information about it and perhaps tell the owner what the item is worth.
Thanks a lot.
