Celluloid Powder Box

$74.95
Quantity available: 10
Lovely piece like this were originally used for powders for the face, or talcs for the body. Of course there would have been a fluffy powder puff inside. With the advent of inexpensive plastics in the 1930s, vanity items like these became more readily available. We are fortunate to have a few of these special powder boxes made of true celluloid. Most cases are 2-3/4 inches in diameter (70 mm), some are a tiny bit larger and others a tiny bit smaller. The lid slides on for a nice fit. Please be careful if you really fill your case with powder - don't pick the box up by the lid or you'll have a powdery dresser top. When closed with the lid, the little case measures the same in height as the diameter (2-3/4 inches). We love the old printed cardboard boxes as well as the metal ones, but there is something so warm about celluloid, both in the patina and the feel. We're sure you'll find just the perfect use for yours! Made in Germany
