This fabulous vintage Max Factor "Pocket Watch" style compact depicts on two sites a naked woman and child. It is an antiqued gold tone metal finish. Heavy, the compact is shaped like a pocket watch and shows a picture that resembles an old/antique drawing in a circle around the front. Inside, a small powder puff is marked MF and there is a light toned powder intact and used inside along with a mirror.
The compact measures about 2" in diameter with an extra 1/2" for the stem. This compact is in good used condition.
Who has an idea of the period it could be?

    I found the same at an antique shop in Okeechobee Florida, I purchased it for $25. Similar ones I have found online seem to go anywhere from $40 - $80. The time periods are from the 40s - 60s. I hope this information helps. If you learn anymore about this piece please contact me.

    Your item is a Max Factor powder compact from the early 70s, selling at the time for about 4.oo retail. They were made in a series of five, the one you have is called Aphrodite.
