This compact is suitable for use with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror.
A rare & beautiful French celluloid compact with a romantic pastoral scene on the lid. The lid decoration is in excellent condition & there is no loss of design. The edges & base have the most wonderful marbled effect. The mirror is excellent & gives an accurate reflection. The mirror bezel & the brass surrounds of the lid & base are gilt. The powder well is stamped 'MADE IN FRANCE'. The original sifter is in place & it is in very good condition. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. The base has a slight dimple which is difficult to see because of the marbled effect. On image four the light is reflecting on the base & so I have taken another photograph of the base to show this area (green marbled) without the light reflecting on it. This compact comes with a velvet drawstring pouch.
