1950s Elizabeth Arden “Ardena Invisible Veil” Powder Box

While honeymooning in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago I went to Mercat Del Encants, one of Barcelona’s largest and best loved flea markets to look for treasures for my Kill An Hour store. And I found a few! Among them I found this ah-mazing vintage Elizabeth Arden London – New York – Paris “Ardena Invisible Veil” Shade No. 6 face powder & puff in original container from circa 1950s. How beautiful is this?

This particular powder box was made in Madrid and intended for sale in Spain as indicated by the Spanish markings on the bottom of the box.

The box is made of pink carton with gold rims and encircled in a border of gold leaves and scrolls. While the box and the plastic film sealing the powder have been opened the powder is still all in and so is the puff. If this has been used it couldn’t have been used more than once or twice. What is amazing about this powder is that it still maintains its fresh powder scent! It smells like brand new powder! The shade of the powder is a lovely light pink/neutral color – seems fairly neutral and might work well on most skin tones.
