This compact was probably picked up in a New York gift shop sometime in the late 1950s. This is a silver tone compact with a brushed silver tone top. Also on the top are gold tone depictions of iconic features of New York City. These include Times Square, the U. N. Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the RCA Building, Coney Island and La Guardia Airport.
The compact clearly has never been used. The strainer is clean and nice as is the original powder puff. The ribbon across the back of the puff has come loose. But it does have issues which include age corrosion, mostly around the edges and inside beneath the strainer. The mirror is intact. The catch on the compact works perfectly and the hinges are also in excellent working condition.
The compact measures 2-3/4" long by 2-1/2" wide by 1/2" deep.
