Hinged On One Side, The Opposite Side Opens With A Fancy Little Push Tab. Dangling From The Side Is A Remnant Of A Red Tassel. Open The Dance Compact To Find An Intact Mirror (one small chip and one mark on the mirror), The Mirror Set Into A Fancy Bezel Opens To Reveal A Fresh Magenta Rouge Cake Covered With Silvery Foil and Unused Puff. The Other Compartment Has A Fragrant Pale, Pink Powder Cake Also With Silvery Foil and Unused Puff Marked May Fair.
