Romance Your Vanity with Vintage Talc Canisters
Those old talc canisters can be valued up to $15 each, but any water spots or rust stains can affect the appraisal. If it’s not worth it to you to sell these canisters, they can make romantic displays on your vanity.
This Vintage Art Deco Tin by Woodworth launched in 1912 with a scent called “Fiancee.” Now you can have the tin to remember it by. It stands 5” tall and 1.5” wide. This brass cylinder canister would bring out any wood vanity, and you can mix and match it with other empty or full perfume bottles and powders.
Many talc canisters in the past were made of metal, but during World War II’s metal shortage, the talc was stored in cardboard containers. One model in particular made of cardboard was Colgate-Palmolive-Peet Co.’s “Cashmere Bouquet.”
