This is a beautiful set consisting of a woven cloth and satin carrying case in black with gold, aqua, purple, green and brown paisley design. The case has an opening that apparently once held a matching lipstick. The end with the snap closure holds a beautiful gold tone brass powder compact with an engraved bird design on the front and an engine-turned design on the back. The mirror is in great shape. The inside cover latches securely and opens to a pretty sifter in a clean case. Below the mirror on the rim it is inscribed Melissa Made in England. This is a very nice set in very clean condition. Looks like it may never have been used. Melissa compacts were first produced in the 1950's.
