Here is lovely powder compact made by Pilcher. It is square in shape and measures approximately 2-7/8" in diameter X 3/8". It is silvertone with a matte finish and gold plate abstract flower motif. This piece is unused, purchased from the estate of a jeweler. We estimate it is from the Art Deco era, circa late 1930's-1940's.
The compact has a mirror inside the top and a powder compartment in the bottom. The powder applicator or puff is in place as is the manufacturer's paper band or strap. There is also a manufacturer's sticker on the mirror which reads: "Gold Plate on Silver Finish by Pilcher" The merchant's price tag is also present. There is a tarnished area on the back of the compact, which we have not attempted to clean or polish - please see our photographs. The hinges and closure all work as they should, there are no dents, and the compact is in very good condition overall.
