OUTSTANDING & RARE! Unopened! Circa 1929, American, Face Powder by Terri in Original, Cowboy / Old West Inspired Box.
This sensational talc 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. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailer's individual labels.
After doing research I could not find anything on this particular manufacturer or this item. This exquisite presentation is a rare treasure! This unusual powder box is a one of a kind! This terrific face powder box is UNOPENED. The original, plastic seal is still intact! This round shaped, jet black and cream colored, face powder container is decorated with the most amazing artwork. The entire box is created with many different cowboy / Old West scenes. The box is created using a type of cardboard that simulates real buckskin. The container really feels like it is covered in a suede / buckskin material. The focal point on the top of the box is a silver colored cowboy dancing with his lady. The cowboy is donning flared pants and a cowboy hat on his head. The lady is clad in a long, flowing dress with a decoration in her hair. This box is most unusual! The sides of this one of a kind box are decorated with different old West scenes. The sides of the box are a beige colored buckskin. All of the artwork is produced in a bold, jet black color. The first scene depicts the same as the one on the lid a cowboy and his girl dancing. The second scene is of the same cowboy playing his guitar for his lady. She is standing behind a counter with a pot of flowers. The next scene is of the cowboy riding his noble steed. The regal horse is prancing with its legs high in the air. The next scene is of a bullfight. The cowboy is the matador. The cowboy is carrying a long sword and his cape. Three onlookers watch as the bull is about to attack the matador. The final scene is of the cowboy seated in a chair strumming his guitar. His maiden is dancing with her arms over her head. Her dress is flowing as she pirouettes on one leg. This box is amazing! It is definitely a must have for the vanity collector! This container is a work of art.
Printed on the bottom of the box is the company information. Printed on the bottom of the box in jet black colored lettering: TERRI * Face Powder must be the softest imaginable to the sensitive skin. It must stay on. It must blend with the natural color. It must convey a subtle delicacy of clean fragrance to the skin. In achieving these things it must not impair the health, mere harmlessness will not suffice. Face Powder applied so often should incorporate healing and soothing qualities and possess superficial charm. Printed inside a jet black colored oval: Tested and Approved By The Bureau of Foods, Sanitation and Health. Good Housekeeping Magazine * 4591.
The shades available are: Flesh, Rachel, Peach Tint, many others too! Believe it or not Green! I am not sure if the face powder or the box is the prize! The box is a TREASURE! The artwork on this box is amazing! This powder set is a must have for the collector! The box top lifts off to reveal the original, paper seal. I have not opened the seal as I did not want to lessen its value. The inner cardboard is a flashy, silver color. Printed inside the box in bold, black lettering: Terri Blended * Pull string completely around to remove top. Powder becomes instantly available.
