Item details

Vintage from the 1950s


metal, brass, cotton, powder

Such an elegant powder compact! The tear drop (or heart) shape is quite unusual, and the engraving on the front adds an elegant touch. The top pops open to reveal a mirror in the lid, and a small toggle pops open the second cover, home to a Lushus pink powder puff and face powder.

Measures about 3 1/2” by 3 1/2” by 1/2” thick. Decent used vintage condition with some tarnish and dark marks on the front, as shown, and minor scratching. The remains of the original powder and puff are intact. Marked 'Elgin American, Made in U.S.A.' and what looks like hand engraved initials of 'dln' under the brand mark.
