This unusual, very early 20th century sterling silver compact has three stepped tiers for rouges and powders. Inside the lid is stamped the number "48," and inside the wall of the body is also stamped the number "48." The base is signed "Powder-Tier, Pat Pndg, Sterling." This item stands 1 5/8 inches high, and is 1 1/2 inches wide when closed. The clasp works well. This item has it's original woven silver strap, which is fragile at the half-way point, probably from having been continuously folded at that spot. It is being held together by only half of the silver strands. The body has two very small dents, from normal wear. There are no other flaws, no warps, no monograms. This item weighs 59.3 grams.
