The most gorgeous & very rare vintage silver Dorothy Gray "Picture Hat" novelty compact mirror. Usually we see the "Picture Hats" in gold tone but this one is silver tone & in the most gorgeous condition.
I have only ever seen two of these silver "Picture Hats." This compact is much larger than the other "Picture Hats" measuring 3 3/4" & weighing 151.9 grams.
It is made to resemble a Summer hat & indeed this wonderful 3D engine turned hat does!
It is exceptionally well made & delightful! It was made in the 1940s & still has the original puff.
The compact is in excellent condition. The mirror gives a good clear reflection. It has some silver loss at the top but this does not detract at all from such a rare find.
The base is signed " Dorothy Gray ".
We provide historical details with all purchases & this one comes with an extensive fact sheet.
