Vintage London Souvenir Loose Powder Compact 1950s


This vintage powder compact is suitable for use with modern loose face powder or as a handbag mirror. A beautiful unused compact made by A S Brown, makers of the Mascot brand, in the 1950s. The pictorial inlay is delightful....the statue of Anteros in Piccadilly Circus.  The scene is superbly well preserved having been well protected by the cellulose acetate lid. Around the pictorial inlay is a gilt border.  The inner lid is signed 'ASB MADE IN ENGLAND.' The interior of the compact is typical of the Marlene loose powder compacts. The mirror gives a good clear reflection. The hinge and clasp work perfectly. The original pristine white card edged sifter is in place. The original box and pouch are also present. The black pouch is lined with soft white fine fleece and the edges are neatly sewn with gleaming navy blue silk thread. The compact looks like it has been sat in a cupboard for the last sixty plus years. A wonderful evocative mid-century antique! Measures 7.6 cm x 7.4 cm and weighs 93.1 grams.
