A Short History of the Powder Compact & Elgin: From its first formal appearance in 1908, until its unceremonious demise in the mid-1950s, the decorative compact was a veritable shape shifter, being found in every imaginable shape. These durable metal compacts met the needs of the image-focused, physically mobile, post-World War I woman who used her compact as a testament to her sophistication and femininity.

The Illinois Watch Co. was an American company that was originally located in Chicago but in 1890 moved to Elgin, Illinois. During the 1940's when the watch case business started to run into hard times, they branched out and started their line of ladies compacts under the brand name Elgin American, many of which were made for famous cosmetic houses.
