Vintage Cosmetic Collection

Earlier this spring we hosted a "Tea in the Boudoir" event where collector Cheryl Harmon shared her vintage compacts, lipstick cases, cosmetic cases and a few perfume bottles including a rather large bottle of "An Evening in Paris".
This vintage cosmetic table was a crowd favorite. It is a stylish table that opened to reveal access to your cosmetic.

Cheryl also highlighted a few cosmetic advertisements including one by Tangee lipstick Co encouraging women to feel feminine during World War II --" Beauty must be Served"  and "Beauty on Duty".
She also shared a variety of ads and cosmetics for all of the many skin tones women have. It was a lovely afternoon. We love it when our tea party guests have fun with the theme!
