The Armand Company was formed in 1916 by Carl Weeks in the U.S., which was a major face powder seller at that time. The French sounding ‘Armand’ name was complemented by the use of Louis XVI imagery in early packaging and advertising.

The powder tin was bought with other four sample tins in a box (see at page “Miscellaneous”), not sure they were packed in such set originally. The size of the outer box is 8.5 x 15 x 2.5 cm. It also includes a booklet (6.2 x 9.8 cm) named “The Creed of Beauty” published by Armand in 1924.
