Jeannette bottle works began operation in the late 1880s in jeannette, pennsylvania. In 1898 the company became jeannette glass company. Like so many other glassware entities, this one concentrated on utility glass early on and produced a vast selection of handmade bottles, jars, and dishware well into the early 1900s. The company expanded production to prism glass in 1917. Prism glass was incorporated in both business and residential structures to increase light exposure.Improvements made to the factory during this period, however, included converting it to a pressed glass facility. This change allowed the company to later produce the depression-era kitchen glass and dinnerware for which they are best known. Face powder is a cosmetic product applied to the face to serve different functions, typically to beautify the face. Originating from ancient egypt, face powder has had different social uses across cultures and in modern times, it is typically used to set makeup, brighten the skin and contour the face.
Face powders generally come in two main types. One of which is loose powder, which is used to assist with oily skin in absorbing excess moisture and mattifying the face to reduce shininess. The other is compressed powder which conceals blemishes and maximizes coverage. The use of face powder has contributed to beauty standards throughout history. In ancient europe and asia, a whitened face with a smooth complexion signalled a woman of high status.
The prevalence of this trend was carried throughout the crusades and medieval era. During this time, women used harmful ingredients as face powder including bleaches, lead and lye. Vintage jeanette swan trinket box, powder box, or trinket box measures 4.75" by 5" high from bottom to top of head.
