Unused Elgin American musical powder box musical compact mirrors 1940s


We have run out of stock for this item.

A beautiful unused 1940s Elgin American musical powder box in excellent condition. Such a gorgeous little music box! The lid has contrasting finishes with incised musical notes and instruments. One the left piano keys and on the right a violin, the musical score undulating beneath it. The whole item a deep rich gold as you would expect of brass over seventy years old. The interior case is signed "Elgin American MADE IN U.S.A PAT. PEND." The inner lid has an attractive engine turned design. The baby blue puff is signed "Elgin American" in gilt lettering and it has a match silk tab. The pristine card edged sifter has a white tab to aid removal. The mirror gives an excellent clear reflection. The mirror has a few subtle aged related marks which in no way detract from this delightful collectible. The musical movement is very sound and plays clearly and easily. The base has an engine turned design. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. 

This adorable musical powder box measures 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" & weighs 124.1 grams.
