MOTHER OF PEARL RECTANGULAR VINTAGE POWDER COMPACT
This is a vintage powder compact with mother of pearl pieces on the top - to form a pattern. It is for loose powder and would probably have been made around the middle of the 20th century. It is not marked with a manufacturer but is marked 'made in Switzerland'. The compact is in good condition for the age and considering the fact that it has been used - lightly I think! The beveled mirror is in good condition too. Full details and lots more pictures are on my web site - www.gillianhorsup.com - scroll down the left hand side and look in 'powder compacts, make up etc.' I always try to have a selection of vintage powder compacts and get visits from the British Powder Compacts Society. Ref: 3327 D41/10
