This is an extremely rare antique Cleopatra Vanity Box Co. powder box photo frame style compact.

The piece is hallmarked on the interior with "CLEOPATRA VANITY BOX CO. Pat. July 5th 1910, New York, N.Y. U.S.A.".

It is made of a light weight gold tone metal (we are not sure of the metal content, could be gold, gold filled or some other combination) which has a lovely and intricately designed Art Nouveau stamped lid.

The base of this compact comes apart to add your personal photo, and there is a piece of glass that protects the photo. We are including the original photograph that came with the piece, as well as a holograph that works beautifully with this piece.

The compact opens to a removable powder sifter plate that is in excellent condition, and has a small recessed ring for easy removal to add your powder.

The piece has some very slight age appropriate wear, but is in fantastic condition for it's age. It does have some very tiny dings to the lid that are barely noticeable, and they certainly do not detract from the beauty of this wonderful photo frame compact powder box.

It measures 2 inches in diameter and is approximately 3/8 of an inch in thickness.

We have never seen another photo frame compact like this one anywhere, and were unable to find any information regarding the manufacturer in any compact books. We have checked numerous sources and were unable to find out anything regarding this extremely rare piece.

This piece would make a wonderful addition for the serious compact collector, and doubtful one like this will be seen again.
