RARE Antique 1910s - 1920s Colgate SAMPLE SIZE Powder Tin that still has its contents: Vintage Cashmere Bouquet powder.

Colgate was once one of the most prolific producers of perfumes and perfumed powders, and one of their tactics was to give away samples to attract buyers into purchasing the full size of the perfume or powder, and one format was a tiny tin of perfumed powder.

Here we have one of those sample size miniature tins of Cashmere Bouquet, one of Colgate's most successful products. This is a must-have for avid collectors of vintage perfume and cosmetics.

The size is approximately 2 1/16 x 1 1/4 x 5/8 inches. The tin still has the powder inside and the twist shaker top works great. It is remarkable to find a sample size tin of this product from this era. It is even more remarkable to find it with the original powder still inside!

One side of the green and gold tin has graphics that are in better shape than the other. The good side is depicted in Images 1 and 2. The side with more marring in depicted in Image 4. There is rusting all around, as would be expected of an item 100 years old; nevertheless, this piece displays beautifully and will make a great addition to your vintage cosmetics collection.

I have had this for decades, but it is time for me to downsize to make space.

If you like vintage perfume, cologne, and cosmetics bottles and containers, keep an eye on my Etsy shop. I am downsizing my 40-year collection.

Thanks for looking!
