This unusual powder sachet is a one of a kind! This terrific talcum powder sachet is UNOPENED. The original, packaging and plastic wrap are still intact! This sensational powder set was purchased directly from the estate of the original manufacturer. The labels and the boxes 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 boxes each retailers individual labels.

The satin ribbon is in PRISTINE condition. The satin ribbon is securely tied in a pretty bow. Affixed to the front of the box is its original, oval shaped, paper label. The label is simple but very striking! The background of the label is black with bold, crisp, white, script lettering. Printed on the label: Black Magic by Bombi. The entire label is accented by a simple, but elegant double border. The outside, solid border is created in a crisp white color. The inside border is ingeniously created in RAISED, silver foil to form a three dimensional effect. The label is in MINT condition with no damages or lifting. A second, rectangular shaped paper label is affixed to the bottom of the box. Printed on the paper label in bold, black colored lettering: SACHET PILLOW * DIST. BY BOMBI, NEW YORK * NT.

The top of the tassel is tied to form a pretty bow. The edges of the sachet are trimmed with a slightly darker, yellow colored piping. The pouch / sachet is accented with a pleated design.
