Vintage compacts

Before you could go into a chemist to buy pressed powder ladies carried around with them fancy compacts. They were not only practical but were beautiful objects in themselves - and are now very collectable! Ranging from art deco style to kitsch 1950s ones there are no shortage of designs!

After looking at some of the beautiful examples from the dealers we took a look at the fantastic advertising that went with them!
