    Hey Karen,

    Check in more often with us!

    Can't answer specifically about your question but I think the Zodiac powder are all the same. All my powder compacts have London.

    Here is a pic of one of my Zodiac powder compacts, perhaps you can compare them:

    Hi Karen,

    I checked some of my powder compacts and most of them (not only the Zodiacs) have London underlined, but I have no idea why EL does this.

    Karen,

    Sorry I haven't seen these- I'm not too familiar with the powders so maybe someone else knows.

    Hi Karen! I have found pictures of these compacts in Roselyn Gerson's book “Vintage and Vogue Ladies Compacts” (I still believe that I mainly collect powder compacts <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> ) Anyway this Zodiac collection is from 2000 and the one you couldn't identify is the Aquarius. For those of you who have the book, these are on pages 248-249. Another Zodiac collection was released in 1996 (pages 216-217) and powder compacts from this collection turn up regularly at eBay and correspond to the solids you mentioned.

    Hi Karen,

    if you go to the following link and then enter Zodiac into the field “NAME” you will get all the Zodiacs. Sorry, but those from 1996 are entered twice as they were issued with different boxes (rectangle and also square) and everyone knows that I collect the same solid or compact more than once if they have different boxes.

    DATABASE POWDER COMPACTS

    You will find your acquarius on page 5 out of 10.

    And may I add, Thank you Brigette (and you too Lisa), both of you have been so very kind to me since my becoming a member here.

    I would love to be ablt to keep at least one of everything I have found over the last few years, but unfortunatley I would have to divorce my darling hubby, throw the kids out way before the reached maturity and either have a huge Sale, hire an auction company or just plain pull a dumpster up to rid myself of all the things we have accumulated over the years. (And some of it I am quite fond of !) <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    I would also like to add my thanks Brigitte, for sharing you data base with us.

    You must have spent a great deal of time putting it together and I certainly appreciate your efforts.

    There are so many stunning compacts. Oh where to start!!!

    Thank you ever so much for this database Brigitte!! You made my day <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> I spent hours yesterday going through it!! Finally I got the answers I needed for my own humble list of powder compacts. Such a tremendous work you have made, my gratitude is forever yours <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    Hi everyone,

    thanks for all the great feedback. As you could see it's not yet complete..there are some pics missing and maybe some dates are not correct….I did my best.

    If anyone can give some input on this database, please be so kind as to contact me and I will gladly add it.

    Have a wonderful day, Brigitte
