Vintage powder and rouge compact with hand painted rose design in an oval porcelain disc on the cover. The base is a enameled black metal base with a brass colored rim.
The inside of the compact has an hinged metal mirror with a rouge compartment underneath. The "powder" compartment could hold loose powder or pills, a hankie or other vanity items. A spring loaded clasp opens this amazing compact.
This vintage compact measures 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" and is 1/2" deep. It is in good vintage condition with some light scratching on the porcelain and mild scratching on the black enamel. There is some rouge left in the compartment. This is obviously a piece that was well loved.
