Our Inaugural Publication

June 7, 2024

Our newest educational efforts are directed towards collectors, authors, and subjects that risk being forgotten.  We are branching out with PPF Publishing providing educational content and resources, as well as comprehensive documentation on vintage perfumes, compacts, related vanity items, and ephemera. 

The Art of Montral - Powder Watch Compacts, 1927 - 1931 by authors and collectors Howard W. Melton and Anne de Thoisy-Dallem, is our inaugural publication.  

They capture the previously unknown history of Montral through documentation, patents and known compact examples, telling a tale of luxury, creativity and the pursuit of beauty in an era marked by unprecedented social and cultural transformation.
