This is such a rare find. A loose powder compact made to resemble a silk purse! Such a delightful vanity. The lid & base are made from fine black silk. This vanity was crafted c.1940 & we have not seen one like it before. The closure is just like that of a purse. The frame is gilded lacquered brass. 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 accessory can still be used with powder. The compact, puff & sifter are in excellent condition. The mirror gives a good and accurate reflection. A black velvet drawstring pouch is included with this item.

Measures 8 cm diameter. Weighs 70.4 grams.
