An enchanting Melissa loose powder compact made in the 1950s. A really beautiful compact which has a glorious deep golden patina. Images one and two show circular reflections which are not flaws. You can see that the lid is a uniform golden colour from looking at image four. The lid is set with Lucite dome which houses the most adorable light purple Lucite flower with a golden stem, yellow leaves and pink buds all fashioned from Lucite. The lid is made even more appealing by a stamped impression of guilloche engraving. The lid opens to reveal a golden interior, an excellent mirror and the original puff and sifter. The base is gilt and satinized. A velvet drawstring pouch comes free with this order to keep the compact in this super condition.
This adorable compact mirror measures 3 1/4" and weighs 89 grams.
