Vintage powder compact made by Richard Hudnut of New York. It has an Art Deco Design with navy & green enameled squares in a geometric pattern. It measures 3 ½" long, 2 ¼" down. The mirror is in perfect condition and the powder puff is still inside. The sides of the top & bottom are beveled, so when closed looks very deco.
Richard Hudnut definitely stands out as one of the most favorite compact manufacturers. Glamorous, sophisticated, high-end compacts with gorgeous details. Hudnut cosmetics and perfumes first appeared in New York City in 1880. He's widely considered the first American to have a major impact in the cosmetics field, entering the market six years before the California Perfume Company, now Avon. Before these two major players appeared on the scene, American women exclusively used fragrances imported from Europe. This Art Deco Ladies Compact is signed Richard Hudnut New York on the back. There are minimal surface scratches as to be expected and a small flaw on the back.
Size: 3½ x 2¼ inches
