AGE: Looking at the compacts style and the advertisments style, putting at 1920-30s. The chrome ones were made in 1920s & 30s '' Tangee cases that were marketed between 1922 and themid 1930s all looked the same. Gunmetal brass with the Tangee letters painted in orange.''

COLOUR: I would describe as a dark coral shade- Best for blondes, sandy browns, golden tones.

CONDITION: Appears clean and used prehaps only once.

MAKER:  George W Luft and his product was Tangee.

               '' Tangee was a technical marvel. Its tangerine shade (that gave the product its name) actually changed colour, after it was applied, to conform to the complexion of the wearer. It was marketed as a product that “... defies detection. Blends perfectly with every complexion. Waterproof and permanent. One application is required a day.”
