Under a Lucite dome on a background of emerald green glitter foil sit delightful silk flowers.The exterior case is deep gold and decorated with the most gorgeous and complex engine turned design. The little handle is functional and engraved to resemble the handle of a wicker basket. Just adorable! The compact looks like it has spent the last sixty plus years in a display cabinet. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The original puff and sifter are in place. The puff has a salmon pink felt top and a pale pink sash. The sifter is the card edged type. It is neatly sewn with clean cream silk thread which also holds the cream silk tab in place. The mirror has some age related marks, however, it gives a reflection clear enough to be usable as you can see on image five. Measures 2 1/4 " and weighs 68.4 grams.
