Book Piece Powder Compact Pygmalion World Globe Compact Mirror 1950s


We have run out of stock for this item.

A charming book piece Pygmalion globe powder compact. We find this 1950s vanity especially charming as the brass was not lacquered by the maker. As a result the exterior case has the most glorious patina - the gold is golden brown.

More delightful vintage powder compacts and vanities.

The compact is spherical - a delightful representation of the world as it was in the 1950s. The land masses / countries and seas minutely observed and detailed. The hinge and catch work exactly as they should. The interior case contains the original powder well as well as a mirror which gives a clear and accurate reflection. The mirror has some age related marks which in no way detract from this adorable vanity. A pristine pouch is included. Measures 2 1/8" diameter and weighs 80.9 grams.
