Art Deco Make-Up Compact made from Honey Swirled Bakelite, with Gilt Brass Frane.
For the trendy '30's Lady, so she would always have her “Make-Up”.
The top has a lovely Bakelite and Celluloid Cameo decoration on the top
This comes with the powder screen and puff, please note the Puff is damaged a bit, see photo.
The mirror is Not Glass, it is a very shiny metal that is riveted to the frame.
There is some shrinkage of the Bakelite from the frame, but it appears that this has been "sealed" in, it is stable.
This is sold in As Found condition, selling it as I found it.
Overall good condition consistent with age.
The Gilt band frame is a little dull in a few spots, see photos, and some scratching but still lovely
Please, look at all photos so you can see the slight unevenness of the top, sold as is,
watch the video, it shows the compact nicely.
Dimensions are approx.. 2.5 by 3 inches, it is almost 1/2 inch thick, cameo adds abit of height about 1/4 inch
