Vintage Chicago World's Fair Compact from 1933 - it is blue enamel over a silver metal. It shows a geometric tower design on the front with the dates 1833 and 1933 and the inscription "A CENTURY OF PROGRESS" as well as a lovely art deco design.
I have seen many World's Fair Compacts, but have not seen this one. I believe it is quite rare and highly collectible!
This was sold during the Chicago World's Fair in 1933 as a souvenir collectible.
It measures 1.5 inches wide by 2.25 inces up and down and is a quarter inch thick. The man I purchased this from was able to open it, but I cannot open it and do not want to force it open, however, I saw it open so I do know it contains powder, a powder puff, and a separator to cover the powder and keep it from coming out when opened.
It is in good condition, but there is some aging and petina on the sides, which can be cleaned off easily. Items such as this we do not clean; just to pass it on to a collector who can do the necessary cleaning the correct way. There are a couple of tiny places where the blue enamel has worn away - you can see this in the pictures.
Please send me any questions! Thank you!
