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 painting on the top is signed by the artist but I can’t recognize the spelling well — ” E.M.?. Arnimoty”?.

The box was bought with other five sample tins (see each post at page “Metal box” in “Powder box” ), not sure they were packed in such set originally. It also includes a booklet named “The Creed of Beauty” published by Armand in 1924.
