Beautiful, signed Estee Lauder golden compact features a new, unused powder insert. This is one of the now discontinued angel-birthstone series. The push in clasp features an imitation garnet, the birthstone for January. It measures 2 1/4 inches in diameter and is in wonderful condition. This is a heavy, well made compact with lots of detail including additional crystal clear chatons sprinkled over the top for added sparkle.
Collectible Estee Lauder perfume and powder compacts have been made since 1967 and include many fabulous designs by such notables as Judith Leiber, Erte', and Jay Strongwater. The detail and quality are amazing. It is easy to see why these are so collectible.
