Marked inside Agme, made in Switzerland. An Art Deco sleek design in goldtone. Agme made really wonderful compacts from the 30s to 50s that usually had a mechanical device. They had swiss watches in the front, musical and this one has the letters that can be changed to the owners monogram. You pull back each side and there is a wheel that you spin to the correct letter. (see third picture) Fun piece and a rarity.
Very minimal wear that can be seen in close ups on outside. The mirror has some wear where wheels behind for monogram have rubbed. Has the separate push release lid to open to powder compartment with lovely millwork inside. No powder puff and no powder. From the 30s to 40s.
