Classic art deco decoration on this rare face powder box. Cream background with gold and blue writing. 2 women's faces with windswept hair complete the decoration to the lid. The base states that the powder is'ultra fine adherent' and available in four shades. The lid lifts off to reveal a sealed powder well with the name of the face powder.
I believe that this face powder box is australian, as it was very common in the art deco period here, to use french writing on vanity items as a marketing tool. 7cms in diameter x 3cms. The powder box is in unopened condition and has light wear from storage. The lid decoration remains largely intact, the rim has some very small pin dot losses of colour and there is a small smudge to the right side of the face decoration.The base has 1/11 written in pencil, perhaps an old price. This item is made of cardboard and plastic seal, face powder.
