If you have seen my previous post on my new vintage obsession, then it should come as no surprise that I picked one up. The shop that I bought from ended up being 3 days late on shipping it out to me, so they included a gift that was on my list as well. So, I got 2 for the price of one, which I am very happy about. It’s nice of the shop to have included it, but they also must have a ton of them laying around. Both of my items are new old stock, meaning that they are old from the 1960s and 1930s, but never opened or used. I had plans on using one to store my face powder, but it is quite large as you will see and filled with perfumed powder. I haven’t decided if I will use the powder, keep it intact, or dump it out and fill it with my own or with other things. I know it isn’t recommended to use, but it is only perfumed powder used on the body. Either way, they are lovely display pieces.
As you can see this, pretty piece is actually quite large. It is from the 1960s and I just love the design and color of it. It is made of heavy duty plastic but appears to be glass upon looking at it. It is an elegant piece. As I develop my collection, I might decide to give away pieces of my collection. I can see this staying with the aesthetic that I am going for. I am very happy with my purchase and it was really inexpensive as well for this piece.
I love this cute little box and had it in my cart, but did not buy it. It was included because of the delayed shipping as a gift. A paperboard box will not sit in my collection, but it is a pretty piece. It is from the 1930s and I am keeping it for now. If I find someone else interested in vintage pieces, I might give them this one. It isn’t going to stay in my collection long term. I want real weighted pieces, so cardboard doesn’t fit in with that. It is VERY pretty though and happy that I have it. I guess perfumed powder was just very popular back then instead of liquid perfume.
