I'm not a compact collector, I've not used one, and I really don't know much about them. I'm hoping you do, if you are looking. I can say this shows some wear, some scratches on the base. The puff inside is discolored and worn. I'm not sure if there is supposed to be more than the little powder that is in there. I've not done anything other than wipe off some dust. I'd found this in a very old purse some time back. I'm guessing the purse dated to the 1940's, so I am assuming the purse does, as well.
