Beautiful dreamy & extremely rare woodburys'dream stuff' tinted foundation & pressed powder (in one) box vanity case compact, art deco celestial starburst vanity case, vintage blue & white hard plastic (i believe it's made of celluloid plastic, that they don't make anymore). Powder box in a dreamy sky blue color background with a raised white 3d relief of a beautiful art deco lady that has her face to the celestial art deco starburst sky. This was one of the first of its kind of having both pressed face powder & foundation in one compacts to have come out during this era. This is an amazing piece of 1940s glamour vanity collectible. There is still lots of pressed powder left with a powder puff (unsure if it's the original puff).
The case itself is in fabulous clean vintage condition, without any cracks or dirt between the design casing. The last photo shows a small collection of woodbury, jergens face powders & rouge. Would make an awesome film or movie prop that is set in the early 1940s.Not recommended for actual wearing or use, due to age of contents.
