When Boots The Chemist began manufacturing their own powders and toilet goods, they had compacts made by other companies to house their products, as did many other cosmetic houses.  These compacts are stamped Boots on the base and are known as 'own brand' compacts.  The Art Deco designs on some of these compacts are delightful and particularly stylish.
I love the stylized flowers on this dainty compact and the use of colour.  There is an empty powder godet and no puff.  The base reads 'Boots' France, so could well have been made by one of the French cosmetic houses.  If anyone knows, perhaps they can let me know please?
Silvertone Art Deco compact with raised circular geometric design.  This compact was made for Boots and is stamped inside.  It holds a godet of partially used powder but no puff.  A gift from a friend.
