This is an early Elgin American compact case. It has brushed gold-tone metal with a nice Art Deco design on the outside. Inside is a mirror showing its age with some fading and a tiny nick on left edge. Not sure how it got there as there are no dents in the compact. The compact is still in great condition with no dents. The lid closes and opens easily with the slide of shell shaped lock. Inside the locking door opens with the slide of small tab to reveal the hidden powder which is now empty. Marked on the inside door Elgin American Made in USA.
