Additional Information: 

The Parisian Novelty Company originated in Chicago, Illinois in 1898 as a manufacturer of advertisement novelties such as pinback buttons. During the late 1800’s celluloid was popular in the creation of plastics due to its flexibility, durability, and transparency. The Parisian Novelty Company would reach their peak during the late 1910’s and early 1920’s when they created vanity cases, which were often used to hold money or makeup. The company would eventually be sold in 2008 and renamed to Matchless Parisian Novelty, a manufacturer of pinback buttons and button parts.
