Gleaming and gorgeous! Heavy rolled gold, and pink gold at that! I assume it was meant for rouge, it is the right size! There is no make up left. You know, it would be easy to fill it with lip gloss and use it, what a conversation piece!
I'd say to carry dimes in it, for the pay telephone, but sadly, a dime won't get you a call, even if you could find a pay phone these days.
It is in excellent condition, with one very small, very shallow dent on the back. On the side it is stamped Rolled Gold Shell. It is 1 1/8" in diameter and over 1/4" deep with the ring and chain extending 5".
A fabulous, vintage Necessity Case, Dance Waist Purse or Finger Ring Purse!
