Here is lovely powder compact made by Elgin American. It is square in shape and measures approximately 3-1/2" X 1/4". It is goldtone with a really lovely Art Nouveau design on the top. This piece is unused, purchased from the estate of a jeweler.
The compact has a closed compartment inside. The powder applicator or puff is inside but the layers of the puff have separated. There is no mirror and we don't know if there was one at one time inside the lid. The sticker price tag from the jewelry store is on the back of the compact. The hinges and closures all work as they should and the compact is in very good condition with very minor wear noted. The original box is included.
