The History of Luxor Ltd. of Chicago & Bakelite Boxes Manufacturered for Them by General Industries of Elyria, Ohio

Sharing a link to “CollectingVintageCompacts” and the blog post entitled:

“History of Luxor Cosmetics — “The Brand that was Born in Blood”that offers a highly detailed and colorful historical account of the Luxor Cosmetics Company of Chicago, Illinois and their products manufactured down through the years.  

Below are photographs of two Luxor bakelite boxes that were manufactured by the General Industries Company of Elyria, Ohio.  

The beige and brown bakelite box has much of its original contents, minus a lipstick.  Included is a small brochure that is dated 1933.  The complexion powder in cardboard box and rouge tint in a small green plastic compact are both in never-used condition.  Their noticeable scent still lingers when the bakelite box lid is removed.
