Exquisite miniature brass compact the 1940s, which is now empty and ready for use. Holds three powders, or three notes, or three photos. Beautifully made. A tiny press lock opens and closes with a little click. Engravable smooth surface, should you want to personalize it with initials.

2" x 1.5"

Looks like there may have been initials on originally that were polished out. Frames inside and slender strips of brass that lift to slip a photo under, and one is very slightly bent. Otherwise, excellent, lovely condition.
