Estée Lauder America the Beautiful Compact

The Estée Lauder America the Beautiful Compact has a unique American flag crystal design. Approximately 5.7 cm in diameter, this stunning compact was issued in 1994, and features enamaled red stripes with white stripes of hand set clear swarovski crystals. The top of the compact has a swirl of blue enamel with nine stars each set with a swarovski crystal center. Acquired a number of years ago, it comes complete with a blue satin pouch, and is still filled with Estee Lauder lucidity pressed powder and puff.
Estée Lauder Companies, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of prestige skincare, makeup, fragrance and hair care products with its headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, New York. The company began in 1946 when Joseph Lauder and his wife Estée began producing cosmetics in New York City. Two years later they established their first department store account with Saks Fifth Avenue. The company has produced a series of patriotic compacts, and this is one of the most beautiful examples to date.

  1. I have two new books related to Estee Lauder Solid perfumes and Powder Comapcts. .

    For the last 10 years I have been researching and learning about Estée Lauder collectible compacts. During these years I have met many dedicated collectors. These are collectors that are spread out all over the world. Collectors are always looking for information about these beautiful compacts but there are a very limited number of resources for this information. I decided to create an educational book that will bring the collectors needed information on these Estée Lauder items. Finally collectors will have a reference to see what is available.
