Ultra Rare! Old FRENCH Glass Compass Compact Novelty Working
This is a very rare old compact....not sure of the exact age ..I think from the 1930's to the 1940's
It is marked in very France on the dial see picture # 8.
The compact has a working compass on the top...It is made of glass and metal.
The glass is on the top and the bottom.
The compass has some weight to it. Solid & Sturdy
It measures approx 2.75" across.
When you turn it over you can see yourself in the mirror ( unless the screen is in it) from the inside top, because the bottom is glass.
It has its org. powder screen...
This is a very rare compact and sure to be well received as a gift.
CONDITION: VERY GOOD.
THE HINGE AND CLASP WORK PERFECTLY.
Snaps and stays shut...very sturdy.
THINGS TO POINT OUT:
The compact looks old.
The side has 3 little nicks in the metal near the back. see last picture
I think the metal was gold and has rubbed off from being handled.
The powder screen is fragile and has a little bit of powder on it.
The top has a scratch in the glass
