A Prize! Unopened, Circa 1945, American, Bouquet Talc Powder by Bombi, in Original, Highly Decorated, Hot Pink Colored, Cardboard Container / Box.
The Bombi Company was located in New York, New York, circa 1945. After doing a bit of research, I did find a listing for this manufacturer but I could not find anything on this particular item. This manufacturer (Bombi, circa 1945) is listed in Ken Leach's book "Perfume Presentation 100 Years of Artistry Identification A to Z" on page: 232. This exquisite presentation is a rare treasure! This unusual talcum powder box is a one of a kind! This terrific powder box is UNOPENED. The original, paper seal is still intact! This sensational powder box 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 retailer's individual labels.
This tall, cylindrical shaped, cardboard, talc container is unopened. I am not sure if the talc or the box is the prize! The base and the top lid of the box is a vibrant, hot pink color. The top lid has an opening to sprinkle the talc. I did not remove the lid because I did not want to break the original seal. The box top lifts off to reveal the original, paper seal. I have not opened the lid because I did not want to lessen the value of this wonderful talc. The artwork on this box is amazing! The label is a pink color on the back that gently eases into a pale, pastel pink color on the front. The front of the container features a colorful young girl. She is holding up a square shaped, pastel pink colored banner. Printed on the banner in pretty, blue lettering; Bouquet Talc. Simple but colorful flowers, vines and leaves surround the young girl. A second, brilliant, cherry red banner adorns the front of the container. Printed on the banner in bold, cream colored lettering; BOMBI * NEW YORK. The entire container and label are in pristine condition. Printed in black lettering on the base of the box; DISTRIBUTED BY BOMBI * 500 FIFTH AVE., NEW YORK * NEW WT. 4 OZ. * 75C. Back in the day this delightful talc container cost a whopping 75 cents! There is one tiny crack on the top lid of the box. I have a few of these talc containers and they ALL have the same crack. I do not want to open the lid and damage the seal. I feel the crack might be from the original manufacturing. There is a line on the top lid. It is like today's perforation. The line is to open one side of the container. Otherwise; GREAT condition - NO: DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS! This showy talc container is in MINT and unused condition. Please check out the many other items I have listed by this manufacturer. This manufacturer produced many lovely pieces in their vanity line. This fragrance and the manufacturer are listed on the Perfume Intelligence website. This presentation set was definitely a coveted gift when it was first launched on the market! This striking talc measures approximately 4 ½ inches in height. Guaranteed vintage. This unique powder box is a great gift idea for the collector! ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
