I believe he might be talking about the PF Green bottles. Not sure though.

Molly indeed took more pics, but she hasn't posted them.

The more pictures the better. I agree that the wax in that one photo looks yellow on purpose, rather than yellowed with age.

QUOTE(Artemis @ Mar 22 2010, 03:46 PM) *

Ted Breaux is pretty finickular about his tedious old Froggy French wax seals. I bet he would know. In fact, it would be good to have him join this discussion.


Calling Dr. Bombay ….. <poof!>

I've seen two PF White bottles in the flesh that I can remember. Actually, I want to say there's one on public display somewhere in FR/CH, but I can't recall exactly where. The other is a part of a private collection. I snapped a photo of one some time ago (e.g. 2003), but I don't have that archive with me at the moment. The particular color wax is possibly a deliberate touch to further differentiate it from the ubiquitous green version.

Pernod White is more than likely just PF sans coloration. Actually, there are bottles that are labeled "green" in English as well, presumably to differentiate the two during the time they were sold side by side. The English verbiage implies they may have been intended for Anglo-American markets, but that's just a guess. If so, it does seem interesting that the two bottles I've seen never left FR/CH. I doubt the "white" ever reached any significant degree of popularity, which accounts for its rarity.

Anyway, good find.

Thanks, Ted. Carry on with your tedious waxing, and lets see some of that PF 1901 soon.

Impressive. Do you have any close-ups of the seal?

On another note, does anyone know why Pernod Fils chose to use the word White instead of blanche for the English-speaking market? Other French terms such as Qualité Supérieure were not translated, why blanche (and verte)?

So, what every happened to this bottle, i.e. is it sold? I recall a post over on WS that it was sold.
