Vintage Princess Compact Novelty Suitcase Powder Compact 1950s


We have run out of stock for this item.

An adorable Princess novelty powder compact in the shape of a handbag. No doubt the makers of this import into Britain were inspired by the famous Mascot novelty handbag compacts made in the 1950s. The thumb catch is in the shape of half a flower, with a granulated middle & five petals. The lid has a stylish engine turned design & an enameled central plaque adorned with a faux gem set bow. None of the faux diamonds & rubies are missing. The compact is in good condition & well made. Tilt the flower petal thumb catch back slightly & this activates a spring loaded catch. The lid glides open to reveal a beautiful gilt interior & an excellent mirror. On image two I am positioning the lid so that the mirror reflects the interior or the spring loaded catch would normally make the compact open wider than this. The original puff & sifter are present & they are in excellent condition. The puff is signed 'Princess' on salmon pink fabric. The case is marked 'FOREIGN'. The base is decorated with attractive teal enamel. This novelty powder compact measures almost 3" X almost 2 1/2" & weighs 52.6 grams & it is suitable for use with loose face powder or as a handbag mirror.
