This is a circa 1930s Evans Tango Compact featuring powder, rouge and two sided mirror, plus a lipstick holder incorporated into the handle. The brown enamel top and handle are bordered by a high polished silver tone finish. The bottom of the compact features a machine tooled starburst pattern out to the edge. The top also has a raised reverse hammered Art Deco square frame with a flower design in the center. Inside, the lower powder compartment is empty, and the sifter wheel with a machine tooled starbust pattern turns. The upper compartment has a two-sided metal mirror that exhibits some hazing, but your image is still reflected. Behind the mirror is the rouge compartment which includes original unused rouge with the Evans hallmark stamped into the rouge, an unused puff, and an order form for additional rouge. The lipstick compartment in the handle cannot be opened. I suspect that due to possible heat exposure and/or age, the lipstick has melted inside the compartment. Overall, this stunning and rare tango compact is in very good to excellent condition. There is one tiny scuff mark on the brown enamel top near the edge at the 2 o'clock position, and some very minor scuffing to the brown enamel handle on the underside. Otherwise this compact would be considered in Excellent Condition. It measures 2 1/8 inches in diameter by 5/16 inch thick. The chain measures 1 1/2 inches in length; and the handle is 1 7/8 inches in length by 3/8 inch in diameter.

This rare and unusual Evans Tango Compact would make an excellent addition to someone's collection of Art Deco womens vanity items, a terrific addition to an all Evans collection, or a very thoughtful gift to someone special.
