Pond's Angel Face Compact Powder Canela
Description:British manufacturer Stratton began importing part-finished powder boxes from the US for assembly at its Birmingham plant in and by the s it was creating them from scratch and producing half the compacts used by the UK cosmetics industry. Designed to be displayed rather than fitted in a handbag, they required more ornate designs and many from this era are examples of sleek Art Deco styling. History[ edit ] Compacts date from the early s, a time when make-up had not gained widespread social acceptance and the first powder cases were often concealed within accessories such as walking sticks, jewellery or hatpins. Writing in Americana, Deirdre Clemente suggests that changing make-up trends — notably for natural rather than pale and powdered complexions from the late s on — contributed to the declining popularity of the compact.
