A vintage compact by Elgin American. This is a large square compact with an enamel surface in red. There are gold cut out leaves and running antelope as the decorative cover art. The compact opens to a center mirror on one side and a powder puff on the other which reads "American Beauty" on the front. The gold tone metal rim around the powder tray reads "Made in U.S.A." and "American Beauty by American Elgin". This compact measures 3 1/2" long by 3 1/2" wide and about 1/2" thick. It is in excellent overall condition having no wear as if it had never been used. A perfect gift for collectors.
