A rare 1950s Pygmalion novelty compact made to resemble the world.
This gleaming spherical novelty powder compact is engraved with the countries of the world. As well as the land masses the oceans are engraved too. Globe compacts are highly collectible and hard to find. This piece is in excellent condition. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The globe is highly reflective and so please excuse the reflections showing on the photographs. This mid-century vanity is much more appealing than the images show. The mirror gives a good reflection. Measures 5.2 cm diameter and weighs 77.2 grams. The powder well is signed PYGMALION MADE IN ENGLAND PATENT PENDING. The original pouch is included.
