This large Art Deco era Rex Fifth Avenue compact is ready to repurpose into something wonderful. For collectors who are forgiving of imperfection, it would be a lovely piece to add to a collection.

Missing its mirror and puff, in crafty hands it could become a statement pendant, locket, container for a small gift, frame for special photos, dresser container to hold your jewelry or change… a number of creative possibilities.

We love the compact’s stylish combination of black enamel and tarnished patina of gold-tone brass. The lid’s black enamel exterior has a raised brass rope design circling the edge and a raised flower in its center. The brass base exterior has a very fine etched circular design of tiny waves. The interior of the lid (which previously held a mirror) has a beautiful gold-tone / brass luster.

The compact opens on a small hinge to display the mesh powder cover/separator. Lovely powder fragrance still remains when opened.

As for condition, compact does not have its mirror, puff or powder. Enamel has a few faint scratches, dimples, chips and wear. Brass is tarnished but a lovely patina.

Measures 4” in diameter.

Will ship via USPS First Class.
