Fabulous 1930's art deco signed vintage AMERICAN BEAUTY goldtone compact with gorgeous front and interior design that deco is known for. Stylish compact with mirror and bright pink unused powder puff. American Beauty, Made in USA. Circa 1930's, 1940's.

Once only used by actresses and ladies of the night, make-up gradually gained respectability. In the 1920's & 1930s make-up was associated with Hollywood and its movie stars, the compact became a permanent part of this glamorous world. During Prohibition, flashy flappers flaunted flasks along with deco compacts and vanity bags. No longer hidden away, compacts and powder puffs came out in public, symbols of liberated ladies of the Jazz Age. All women carried a compact, much as we carry a cell phone today.

EXQUISITE construction, heavy high quality compact. Beautiful interior pattern both sides of powder puff well. Top of powder well inscribed - American Beauty Made In The U.S.A. Puff signed American Beauty. Compact measures 3.2 long by 2 1/2" wide at largest point. Puff like new-unused vintage condition. Hinge and clasp works perfectly.

Photos do not fully capture brilliant goldtone hues and exquisite details, wait until you see this beauty up close; it is stunning. Exterior and interior bright shine & clean. Excellent/very good vintage condition. Front excellent. Mirror excellent bright and clean with few little specks. Compact back-some scuffing.

You will make a fashion statement with this rare compact in your purse!!
