This fabulous bi-metal and highly repoussed/relief Evans compact warranted its own full-page, full-color advertisement (please see upper lefthand photo, picture 5)!

This compact can be found in the Aristocrat section of Mueller's Overview of American Compacts, page 215.

It is described there as: "Evans Bi-metal heart compact. Silvertone and rosetone, domed swirl in high relief, allover motif, case signed, ad 12/46. Case 4" x 4" x 3/4". (Green) felt pouch.
Note: This piece represents the apogee of Evans design and the ad has an artist's full-page rendering. No designer or artist name, these later flapjacks put Evans in the enviable position of having instant recognition, hence the lack of ads."

This compact is signed, "EVANS" on the interior powder-well. It comes with original sifter and the very worn green, felt pouch that has protected it for all these years from scuffing and scratches to its radiant surface.

This large compact opens and closes expertly. There are only a few places of minor scratching: photo 4 shows the top, hinge area...most of this brilliant compact is pristine! The mirror is good.

This is a very hard to find compact and I do suggest that if you want one, you better purchase while you have the chance, I've not ever seen another one of these for sale!

Cheers!
