Hello!

I have a Gorgeous Talcum Powder Tin for you to view...

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... I know powder will settle in a can over the years... The Talcum still has a scented fragrance too! I have seen similar cans like mine for auction on Ebay... In little trial sized tins... This would make a handsome display for Antique/Vintage items... Cause You Love the Color Red... Cause Valentine's Day is coming up... It is such a eyecatcher... when seeing for the first time... I am only selling my lovely Tin... due to hubby's pending Retirement in February... He doesn't know it yet... I will just keep on buying... when I see something I love! I hope someone will appreciate... the Rarity of this BIG... VIVAUDOU... Mavis Talcum Tin... I pass it on to you!
