The business that came to be known as The Parisian Novelty Company was originally established in Chicago, 1898, by Louis L. Joseph, the American born son of a German immigrant. He created powder compacts decorated with advertisements. The patent for his invention was granted on November 2, 1915.  They were referred to by the company as toilet boxes.
