moreThe seller says: Some years back, when we dabbled in the makeup business, I started collecting vintage makeup and cosmetics - including powder and perfume boxes, like the eight vintage cardboard boxes shown here. The prize, without a doubt, is the empty, gold-lined flip-top 1937 Shocking Schiaparelli box, made in France, with its IMagnin & Co. label intact on the bottom.
The other boxes, though perhaps less rare, are charming in their own right. They include, in descending order of size: AirSpun by Coty (empty); Heavenlight by Avon (with original powder); Ariel by Avon (empty); Gloriant by Ansehl (with a trace of original powder ; Blue Waltz by Joubert (trace of powder); Light Rachel by Cashmere Bouquet (empty), and Pond's Face Powder (empty).
None of these boxes are dated, but they appear to be from the late 1930s - 50s - given their graphic designs and colors. These had a special place in my cosmetic display case, but they will look entrancing on your Art Deco dressing table or vintage lacquered side table. Of interest to graphic designers, Deco collectors, and of course, those who admire vintage vanity items or are in the makeup business. The boxes are in generally good condition, with some signs of edge wear, as expected. Boxes like these no longer exist on the market - except perhaps in box or cosmetic collections. less
