Rare compacts silk purse compact mirror

Rare silk novelty loose powder compact SILK WEDDING / 12TH ANNIVERSARY gifts

This compact is suitable for use with modern loose face powder or as a handbag mirror.

This is such a rare 'find'. A loose powder compact made to resemble a silk purse. A delightful vanity, the lid & base are made from fine black silk which is super. Made c.1940 & I have not seen one like it before. The closure is just like that of a purse all gilt lacquered brass as is the frame of the purse compact & the hinge too. The compact is well made & has a luxurious feel & the purse snap closure works perfectly as do the hinges. The original puff & sifter are in place & so this can still be used with powder. The compact, puff & sifter are in excellent condition. The mirror is excellent & it give a clean & accurate reflection. A black velvet drawstring pouch is included with this item.

Measures 8 cm diameter. Weighs 70.4 grams.
