Hinged top and bottom feature super lustrous, waved shell pattern, secured with double thumb piece clasp set with cobalt blue glass bullet cabochons. Inside includes original mirror and sifter and (we believe) replacement puff.
The compact measures a generous 3 1/4 inches x 3 inches with a 7/8 inch thickness. Cabs are about 3 millimeters. Weight of the compact and contents is a substantial approximate 108 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. Shell halves are near pristine with no dents, improper bends, or crush. All gold tone finish intact, top and bottom. No scratches or rubs. Blue cabs intact with no chips, cracks or breaks. Hinge strong, top and bottom compact sections aligned and snap shut clasp strong and secure. No chips, cracks or breaks to original mirror. There is some very slight clouding, not affecting adequate reflection. No damage to original sifter. We believe the puff is a replacement. No powder inside. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.
