This lovely little LaMode all-in-one compact, vanity case or necessaire, with hand painted roses and forget-me-nots on a guilloche front, is shaped like a book. There's a "film-winder" style lipstick built into the spine of the book, and "book binder's" corners to the lid in gold tone. The whole case except for the guilloche lid is gold tone. The interior has a beveled mirror, with slight clouding. The inside frame is signed LaMode and the powder well has a signed puff with satin edging and a tiny pocket. The puff has been used. The floor of the powder well, and the top and bottom of its lid, each have different handsomely machine-tooled designs. The rouge cake is intact with its foil cover (slight tear). On the outside, the "spine" hiding place contains the pull-out lipstick in a deep red (it may have slight discoloration), and this is also intact.
This sweet and fun book-style compact is listed in Mueller Vol. 2, p 78. No damage to the enameled top or goldtone sides. The underside of the exterior has some scuffing from use (see photos). This compact is a beautiful find from a high end estate sale, and we know someone is going to be pleased to add it to a treasured collection.
