VIVAUDOU ... MAVIS Imported Talcum Distr. N.Y. Net Wt. 10 Oz.

I bought this several years ago... from a Estate Sale... of a Retired School Teacher in Dallas, Texas... She taught children for over... 40 years... She had a huge stash of Beauty items... I fell in love with this Beautiful Red Talcum Can... as soon as I saw it! I knew it was old... I have looked at seller's ads on ebay... for magazine advertisements.... I am sure this is from the... 1920's to the 1930's... It does have some age condition spots that can be viewed in pictures... I am not sure what was splashed on one side of the label... Some kind of toxic beauty wash? It does not look like erosion... A expert could surely bring this back... to the original condition... T are not any dents or major scratches... anyw on canister... T is a small rust spot... in the side seam of the can on one side... Look at how clean the bottom of the tin can is in... This Bad Boy is... 7" tall... to the top of the tin... Measuring to the lid... It is... 7 3/4" tall... It is... 3" wide & 2" deep... It feels completely full to me... I am going to say it is at least ... 75% full...
