THE ARDENA PATTER IN BOX - ELIZABETH ARDEN

This is an early Elizabeth Arden 'Ardena Patter' in the original box.  At the time it was though that patting the skin in a prescribed manner with Arden products would somehow improve it.  There are full instructions given!  An interesting article can be found on www.cosmeticsandskin.com/patters - which describes how, when and why these were used.  I love the graphics used in the early Arden ads - much more than the actual patter!  Interesting for a collector.  Ref: 2964 C46/48
