A copper map of the world Mascot novelty powder compact in excellent condition. The Mascot brand was noted for making good quality novelty handbag powder compacts in the 1950s & this is a very good example. The whole compact is beautiful. The compact is decorated with a map of the world. Surrounding the globe are four clouds with modes of transport engraved within them. One is a plane, another a car which looks very much like a 1950s Jaguar, then a steam ship & finally a train - a steam train. The rest of the base is decorated with guilloche engraving. The copper hue is gorgeous! The lid shows a map of Cyprus, a scroll underneath engraved 'CYPRUS', two clouds - one with a sailing ship & another showing St. Sophia Cathedral. The shield of The Cyprus Regiment is also shown, as this is a military collectible as well as a novelty compact. The badge of the Cyprus Regiment was a shield charged with two lions passant guardant. A very charming mid-century antique. The handle is pretty, ornate & functional. On tilting the handle slightly backwards the lid opens to reveal an excellent mirror that gives a very good reflection. The mirror bezel is marked " MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN." The inner lid is very attractive having a design of parallel lines. It is signed " Mascot ASB." All clasps & hinges work perfectly. .

This novelty powder compact measures almost 3" X 2 1/2" & weighs 82.9 grams.
