Adorable! Circa 1930's, American, Clear Glass, Bath / Talcum Powder Bottle by Weldon, Painted with a Cute Koala / Teddy Bear.
In 1930, Weldon, Inc. was an American manufacturer located in New York, New York. This exquisite presentation is a rare treasure! This unusual bath powder jar is a one of a kind! This terrific powder jar is UNOPENED. This sensational bath powder was purchased directly from the estate of the original manufacturer. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed at the same time period. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailers individual labels.
This distinctive, clear glass, bath powder bottle is molded in classic, Art Deco style. The sides of this upright, rectangular shaped bottle are molded with crisp, horizontal shaped ribbing. The ribbing adds wonderful dimension to this spectacular bottle! This simple but elegant bath powder bottle is designed with clean lines and it is in perfect condition. This terrific powder jar is UNOPENED. The bottle still retains its original cork. I did not want to remove the cork and thus lessen its value. The original, jet-black colored, horizontally ribbed, plastic/bakelite screw cap is in excellent condition. The front of this rectangular shaped, clear glass bottle is painted/enameled with an adorable, chocolate brown and white colored Koala / Teddy bear. This sweet, bear is a combination of Koala and Teddy bear. As I am not sure which bear it is - I will let the buyer decide. The cute teddy bear is standing underneath a bright red umbrella. The bear is clad in a white colored jacket trimmed with red collar and cuffs. Accenting the bear's neck is a cherry red colored bow tie. The bear has large, oval eyes, white snout and a round, bright red nose. This lovable bear has a furry, white stomach. Printed in bright red lettering at the base of the bottle, "BATH POWDER". Printed in matching, chocolate brown enameling, "DISTRIBUTOR * WELDON INC, * NEW YORK * NET WT. 3 ½ OZ". The eye-catching enameling is in great condition! This unusual talcum powder bottle is a one of a kind. Overall, GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS!
