#C4-ART DECO COMPACT 1926. This is a wonderful OLD horeshoe-shaped vanity case; powder and rouge compartments and swivel mirror. It does show signs of wear, but after 77 years I think it looks really good. There is only one small spot (at the top of lid) that is rather discolored. Looks like a small drop of something spilt on it. The compact is a silver metal and the lid is done in a goldtone with black wash. The embossed picture depicts a woman in a gown taking a glass(?) from a tray being held by a small figure of a servant(?). There are elegant candleholders on each side of the walls and what looks to be a cathedral window above. There are five minor dents on the lid which you can see in the pictures. Nothing major. There is a small eyelet in the hinge. I believe this had a finger ring chain attached at one time. The swivel mirror works fine. There is some hazing to it. The lip on the rouge compartment is stamped PAT. OCT. 5-26. Measures 2 1/2"D and 2"W at the widest point. Back is tooled. Price:$75
