This very pretty, early vintage small compact vanity type purse is celluloid, I believe. It is so cute! It is a beautiful marbled green in color. It measures about 1 7/8" in diameter. It is suspended from a very pretty crocheted style silk cord with a slider that moves up and down on the cord. There are 3 beautiful, silk tassels. Tucked away inside each tassel are 3 accessories. There are 2 lipsticks (one of the lipsticks is lacking the inner lipstick - just the outer metal part only) and the center tassel has a green celluloid container that unscrews and contains an empty, glass perfume vial with a cork stopper. The perfume container is about 2 1/2" long and the lipsticks are about 1 1/2" in length. The interior of the compact has a beveled mirror that is not cracked but has a bit of age haziness. There is a soft, satin backed powder puff and a large, solid powder pat with a piece of old paper over the pat. The entire piece measures almost 13" in total length. The cover of the compact just opens by lifting but it does close well and stays closed. There are 2 pieces of the cording that attach the compact and one of these has unraveled a bit. It is a beautiful, vintage piece in excellent, vintage condition.
