1920 POMPEIAN FRAGRANCE TALC AD, 10 1/2"x 16", excellent condition with some stray marks from the printing process, better condition than the ad show with no missing piece out of the top right corner, there is a very small tear however (nothing of consequence)    #BY30565    $22.00



VINTAGE HYPNOTIQUE MAX FACTOR  PERFUMED BATH POWDER, 1960's - 1970's (?), 3 oz., full and unopened, in original box;  the background color on the box is a beigish pink.  The color of the butterflies on the box, the powder puff satin and the plastic powder drum is an orangish pink.  The fluffy part of the powder puff is pink.  The butterfly on the lid to the powder drum is METALLIC GOLD only.  There is no pink or yellow on the butterfly on the lid.  There is no UPC on the box.   Box is lightweight cardboard. The powder drum is plastic. 
The front of the POWDER DRUM doesn't say anything.  It just has the gold butterfly.  The back of the drum  says, "Max Factor, Hypnotique, Perfumed Bath Powder, net wt. 3 oz., Max Factor & Co., Hollywood, CA  90028 - London - Paris, made in U.S.A., blended in U.S.A. ".  There is also a red number on the top of the back of the drum which appears to read "883A" or "863A" or something else -- all that is sure is that the last 2 digits are "3A".
The satin on the pink powder puff has an embossed butterfly on it.
The front of the BOX says, "Max Factor, Hypnotique, Perfumed Bath Powder, Blended in U.S. A., net wt. 3 oz."
The back of the box has the ingredients and the number "0596-00"   It also says, "Max Factor & Co., Hollywood, CA  90028 - London - Paris, code 8810-26"
The box measures about 4 3/8" x 4 1/2" x  2".
The plastic drum is in excellent condition.  There are some light scratches on the back of the drum.  There are no scratches on the lid or the sides of the drum.  The butterfly on the lid is also in excellent condition.  The powder puff is in near mint condition (no faults that I see).  The paper "skin" protecting  the powder is in mint condition. 
The box is solid and is in very good condition.  There is some very light wear on the corners of the box - especially on the
bottom right corner. 
The left side of the box has a Fay's price tag.  The right side of the box has a couple of very light bluish spots -- which are really difficult to see.  The front of the box has a light crease on the top of the box  (looks like from some pressure) and some small dots of light indents.  Both of these problems are not immediately evident and only visible in the right light .  The back of the box has some lightly indented spots too.   They are also difficult to see.  I think the top of the box might have some light fading -- but it is so light that I am not certain it has faded.    #BY30992    $19.00....
