Guest Book
RARE 1900 Stein Cosmetic Co THEATRICAL Make Up Powder

Offered is an EXTREMELY RARE, unopened, 8 ounce tin of Circa 1900, theatrical make up manufactured by The M. Stein Cosmetic Company of New York City-- the preeminent maker during this time period of theatrical face powder used by stage actors off and on Broadway!

This tin displays absolutely wonderfully and features a fabulously detailed ART NOUVEAU styled blue and cream colored lithograph on the cover! The side labels are quite interesting as well as they detail the 16 different face colors produced by M. Stein which include such unique color names as "Indian", "Moving Picture", Sallow Old Age", Chinese", and "Juvenile Flesh" to name a few!

The only tin remaining is marked as color 12 (olive). Please see photos which well represent condition. The tin has superficial scratches and minimal faint rust commensurate with an early tin. No rust on the bottom as the photo might indicate. The tin measures 4.25 inches in diameter and is nearly 2 inches in height.

The tin you are viewing is noted in the 5th photo. Looks better in person.
