This Rex Fifth Avenue (only the puff is marked and it is obviously the original) compact measures 4" x 4" and is gold tone metal with embossed sides
and back. The top has a transfer pattern of a petit point design depicting roses, smaller flowers and foliage. The thick Lucite covering has been reverse carved to frame this transfer. The plastic was attached with four corner pins / anchors. Has both screen and puff (puff shows heavy use).
The mirror is intact with just a few spots of darkening. This is a terrific example of the oversized compacts popular during the 30's. It is quite heavy and is in very nice condition.
