This is a heavy, high quality compact made by Elgin American. Engraved in the center is, "Class of '54". Maybe a graduation present for a young lady? It has the original puff, and some powder inside. I'll empty it before shipping, if you want, but have left it because some collectors prefer it that way. The mirror, and rest of the inside is very nice. The outside, however,has surface wear, as though it spent a lot of time being shuffled around inside a purse, with no protection. The floral pattern on the top still has faint pink on the flowers, and green on the leaves. It measures 3&1/2 inches by 2& 3/4 inches.
I currently have several other vintage vanity items in my shop, including other compacts, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type, "vanity", or, "compact", in the California Girls search box at the top of this page
