For those who collect resplendently rare, sizzling chic compacts (and/or bracelets for that matter), we have this fantastically fierce Parisienne black Bakelite bangle bracelet compact courtesy of Marlowe. An uber fabulous piece that is sure to be a focal point of conversation everywhere you go, this bangle compact from the 1930s features seven compartments, which are revealed by sliding back a stunning floral chased gold band. (Please note that the cleverly concealed compartments originally comprised of gloss, rouge, eye shadow, mirrors, and powder puff--many still intact, the puff is present but unusable given age; the mirrors are intact with minor loss of reflective material.) So, go ahead and flaunt your searing style in ever so befitting fashion! A wonderful unusual vintage collectible for those who love compacts, vanity items, early plastic and bakelite and for some purse collectors. Fully signed by the designer.
