What a great Art Deco cosmetic container. I think it was used to hold rouge, lipstick, and maybe compressed powder. It is made of pot metal with a chrome finish and the overall appearance is good considering it age. It was produced by W. B. Mfg. Co. as marked on the bottom. It has a very Art Deco appearance as indicated by the clean lines and angles shown specifically on the inside. What a rare piece to display.
