This is a lovely vintage dance compact or carryall in mother of pearl. It has a snake chain handle and a lipstick which clips to the outside. Inside are two compartments, one is a compact for powder and the other is to carry change or other small incidentals. It still has the original paper label which reads Marhill Genuine Mother of Pearl. It looks like it was never used.
It measures about 3 inches by 2 1/2 inches and it is in pristine condition with the exception of some light scratches to the back as can be seen in the pictures.
