Endeavour S02E03 (Sway)

endeavour_s02e03_bornunicorn (1)atkinsonscalifornianpoppy_bornunicornMrs. Haldane, one of the victims of a mysterious strangler, had a very busy dressing table. Among her perfumes, there’s a bottle of Californian Poppy, a fragrance by Josephine Kell Ltd. The picture above refers to the 1940s version of the perfume, while the bottle seen in the tv show has a different shape and a different lettering on the front label.

Thanks to Jennifer for the hand cream id and to Nastja for the Worth id.

  1. Wondering if the tube in front is a tube of Crabtree & Evelyn Gardener’s hand therapy? Looks like all of the products here are vintage though. Although, trying to find vintage tube product is difficult sometimes so they may have subbed in something modern?

    1. Uhm: in films and tv shows the line dividing genuine vintage products and vintage-looking ones is very blurred at times. Vintage perfumes are one thing, make-up or hand creams in good conditions is another thing. All the products on this dressing table look vintage but some of them (like the hand cream) could only look such. I’ll add your id to the post 🙂
