LEVIATHAN: 1914 - Snazzy make-up compact from "Club Leviathan"

Product Description

United States Lines: What any well-heeled flapper of 1930 would deserve, a souvenir make-up compact from the ultra-chic "Club Leviathan".

The 2" diameter brass case features Bakelite inserts, black and red on top with "Club Leviathan" stamped in gold, and solid red on the bottom. Inside are two wells of powder - light pink for lady-like moments and deep pink for when the lights got dim - and a flip-up mirror.

In the late 1920s U.S. Lines hired famed New York architect Eugene Schoen (1880-1957) to convert the LEVIATHAN's stodgy Palm Court into a zippy night club. The result was "Club Leviathan", an Art Deco masterpiece with a stylized "L" logo on the dance floor.

Club Leviathan was a hit when opened in April 1930. There were tea dances in the afternoon, movies in the early evening, and dancing with a light supper beginning at eleven p.m. A floating brokerage office was set up in the mornings. The only thing not offered in the Club Leviathan, at least legally, was alcohol, as Prohibition had yet to be repealed .

Alas it was too little, too late. The Great Depression hit, transatlantic business dropped by 50%, and the LEVIATHAN was soon laid-up as an expensive white elephant.

Good condition with wear and a dent on back.
