A Compact History of Face Powder Containers by Mike Ashton
Price: Showroom Only
Click Here to Contact Me for More Information

Dr. Mike Ashton (a powder compact historian) published a compact history of face powder containers.  There are 7 volumes.  1.  Patents, Construction & Early Usage.  2.  Compressed Powder.  3.  Early Portable & Metal Sifters.  4.  Non-metallic, 1920's & Mechanical.  5.  1930's Sifter, Seals and Fashions.  6.  Wartime & Postwar.  7.  Thematic Collections.    I have found them very useful - especially tracing patent numbers!  I was able to buy mine directly from Mike Ashton- but I think he has moved on from compacts. I believe you can get them from Waterstones Bookshop.
