An unused vintage compact and lipstick case made by the owners of the Melissa brand. Searchlight Products Ltd. crafted this delightful vanity set in the 1950s. The compact is suitable for loose face powder. The lid is satinized with leaf motifs in reflective gold tone. The interior is signed 'Melissa Made in England'. The mirror gives a good clear reflection. The original pristine puff, card edged sifter and protective powder well insert are present. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The base has a bold engine turned spiral. The lipstick holder also has the most glorious deep golden patina. The lipstick mechanism works very well. It will hold lipstick tubes measuring 13 mm diameter. Both items are absolutely gorgeous! The original presentation box has done an excellent job of protecting these vanities. The box is sound and signed 'Melissa'. The compact measures 3" and weighs 87.6 grams. The lipstick holder measures 2 1/4" and weighs 25.9 grams. The makers ensured that all brass surfaces were lacquered and so this set will not tarnish or need to be cleaned.
