1940's Celluloid Trio-ette Compact In Box - 3 In One Design, Detroit For Sale

1940's Celluloid Trio-ette Compact In Box - 3 In One Design, Detroit

The Trio-ette has always been considered as one of the most practical and playful of powder compacts after being launched in 1945. Distributed under the Detroit based House of Plate the trio-ette was a triple based compact - one side holding powder, a branded puff and sift, the other side held rogue and a puff of its own and lastly, the handle held a matching lipstick. This multifunctional approach to women's cosmetics led the House of Plate as describing it as "the amazing new triple compact that blows make up fatigue and bag fumbling". Upon it's top is a raised rose design one inspired by Victorian hand held cameo mirrors with bobble edging. The trio-ette was made from Terite - an early plastic and was released in several colours - mock ebony, ivory and tortoise shell as well as in green, pink and blue sold with a gift box and refills available. In the mid 1940s the tiro-ette sold for $5 and was later reached the UK shores after being sold through a London based mail order company by 1949. This compact comes in it's original box. Rouge intact and unused. Powder side empty. Lipstick still in holder but in a used condition. Box has a little wear to the corners and is not in mint condition, but in pretty darn nice shape. Buyer agrees to pay $6 towards priority shipping in USA. I am also listing a grouping of compacts today. be high buyer on both and save on shipping.
