1930s Leichner "Mandarin" Rouge in its Original 1930s Red Bakelite Pot
A little red Bakelite pot with the letter L embossed on its lid. It is in fact a pot of 1930s "mandarin" Leichner Cosmetics (1878 - present) rouge, which still contains its original sponge, a mirror on the inside of the lid, and most of the contents, which are a wonderful shade of vermilion. In 1878 Ludwig Leichner started a business producing stage make up. Over the years it soon established a strong reputation for vivid colours and reliable products for the stage and screen. By the mid thirties many female artistes who were delighted with the Leichner Stage Make-Up were demanding a cream, which they could wear off stage. The Camera Clear range was introduced starting with the famous Camera Clear Tinted Foundation which is unchanged to this day. Private collection.
The roar of the Greasepaint
.......The Smell of the Crowd. Part of my big clearout, except that I can't bring myself to ditch this stuff, it holds far too many memories! Leichner 5 and 9 were the staples of a good flesh colour under those lights...How times have changed, for the better in this regard! This was my grandfathers and then my mothers. She was a keen member of the Leeds Sylvians, an amateur Musical Theatre company before WW2.
