About

This is an incredibly rare 1930s Art Deco double compact by Richard Hudnut. One of the main criteria’s which command high desirability and collectability is condition and this compact has it in abundance. So often found with flaking enamel or specs and chips of enamel missing. Not this one, it's in the best condition you could hope for. One could easily think it's not ever been used when viewing the exterior. The lid is enameled in a jet black enamel with a streamline chrome detailing. The hinge is tight and the large flip-down clasp closes securely. The back is in excellent condition. The interior has original chrome lipstick holder, powder puff pads and mirror. Marked with maker’s name on the interior in a couple of places Richard Hudnut one of the most collectible names for compacts from this lovely era. Bio, circa 1880, a small pharmacy was opened in New York city and sold perfumes, cosmetics and assorted toiletries. Richard Hudnut, the son of the proprietor of the shop, became the first American selling luxury perfume presentations, (though some of these were created in France) in an elegant shop which was directly influenced by the French and European perfumeries. Richard Hudnut’s legacy is based on his creation of perfumery and cosmetics of notable quality, which were presented in distinctively decorated, and packaged containers. These beautiful and artful containers made Richard Hudnut perfumes and cosmetics still very collectable today. The Richard Hudnut business was then acquired by William R. Warner & Co which, in 1955, became the Warner-Lambert Pharmaceuticals Co., which was later acquired by Parke-Davis in 1970, which, in turn, was merged into Pfizer in 2000.
