Three Flowers Face Powder Tin, Sample, 30's Hudnut
This one is in great shape, a mini tin measuring 1 5/8' by1/4". As you can see from the pictures, the paint is bright, the inside clean with very little paint loss, some sticker residue on the back.
The 30's Art Deco graphic is fantastic!
Richard Hudnut was considered America's first perfumer and that's how he'd like to be remembered. After graduating from Princeton University, he toured France and returned with the idea of introducing French-style perfumes and cosmetics to American women. In 1880 he registered his name as a trademark in both France and the United States
A number of colorful incidents marked Richard Hudnut's life. In 1901, the U.S. Customs Service sent an officer to his house to inquire about certain imports that Hudnut was receiving at a particularly low cost, as no duty was being paid. The officer was told that Hudnut was not at home. In 1905, returning from a summer vacation at his Adirondacks camp, Hudnut discovered that his New York apartment had been looted; even his grand piano was gone. In 1922, after he had retired from business, Hudnut's stepdaughter married Rudolph Valentino, who, as it turned out, had not completed his divorce from his first wife.
