This fabulous vintage compact mirror dates to the 1920s or 1930s. At one end, it's stamped "Du Barry, Richard Hudnut, Made in U.S.A." It's gold tone and embellished with a very pretty chased design. It's gold tone. The clasp works great.
The compact opens to display the mirror on one end of the compact, and dual compartments on the other end, into which to place the powder and rouge. There is no more original pink powder puff tucked inside the rouge compartment, which has a gold tone clasp to hold it in place.
At the top end of the compact is part of the chain that is originally I believe. This was for attaching the lipstick tube that was once with the compact. But the pre-owner has attached a long necklace chain to demonstrate an idea for wearing this compact which will be a great way to display it, rather than hide it in a dark purse pocket.
It's almost 3-1/2" long and almost 1-1/2" wide. It's in very good vintage condition, with only very minimal wear to the metal. The mirror is not there.
