Keeping the shine off your nose used to be a big deal...as evidenced by this oversized Evans powder compact. No shine could get past this beauty protector.
Both sides of this 5-inch compact have a gold and copper tone basket weave design. Open it up and you'll find it empty with the original powder grid still in place...no puff. If this was used at one time, it doesn't have any telltale signs as it's nice and clean to be reused as a pill box, vanity trinket box, or as the powder box it once was.
The mirror is intact with no cracks though the silvering underneath shows some blistering. You'll still be able to see your face quite well, shiny nose or not. The inside edge is marked EVANS. The compact case is in excellent condition on both sides...bright and shiny with a puffy woven design. Circa late 1940s.
