An absolutely beautiful compact duo. The outer case looks gorgeous. It is authentic Art Deco. The lid shows two stylized tulips & leaves decorated with white enamel decorations on one side & the other side of the leaves an outline matching the enameled areas this time filled in gold tone. Such a stylish compact! All the white enamel is very sound. Above this design is a little plant seed blowing in the wind - just enchanting! A compact to fall in love with! Image three shows the base which could not be more Art Deco. Push the thumb catch and more delights appear first of all(image five) a full pan of the original face powder with the 'RU HU' RICHARD HUDNUT stencil still visible set atop the white face powder. There is a flip up metal mirror which gives a good reflection - a few age related marks on it but wait there is more...
...flip up the metal mirror & it stays in an upright position to show another metal mirror in excellent condition & also the most gorgeous rouge compartment - deep gold with a full complement of rouge & the original signed rouge puff. The beautifully gilded powder well is signed 'RICHARD HUDNUT MADE IN U.S.A.'
