Jane Vanroe on collecting vintage powder compacts and compact mirrors. You can find Jane's designs at www.vanroe.com and on Amazon in the EU & USA
This year, touch wood, I’m developing my own range of powder compacts. I’d like to be able to offer a range inspired by the glamorous designs of the 1930s to 1950s – designs that are increasingly scarce and fragile in vintage. Think decadent glamour, swans-down puffs, Grossmiths Perfume.
I’d love to know what your perfect powder compact would look like. Is there a compact you remember, that perhaps you, your mother or your grandmother owned, that you would love to see in use again? You’re very welcome to email me at jane @ vanroecompacts.com, or leave a post on my facebook wall http://www.facebook.com/powdercompacts (“Like” the page first, and you’ll be able to post on the wall). Thank you! x
