The compact is made from 'heavy brass' & shows the representation of a lady standing in the background wearing a costume of an early period with a broad flaring skirt. Kneeling before her are two pages supporting a pillow on which a box of powder and a powder puff are placed. Below the figures the case is signed “Lady Esther”'. The date of this compact is between 1922 - 1925 as the Armand Company began to sue all vanity companies using the hooped skirt girl as a logo and so this logo was only used for a few years by The Lady Esther Company. The compact opens & closes well. The mirror is good. Obviously as you can see from the pictures this compact does look almost one hundred years of age. However, this does not spoil the enjoyment at all. We were delighted to have this rare antique compact in our collection. Measures just over 2 1/2" & weighs 44.1 grams.
