    I used to collect compacts in the 1970s through to the 1990s, and sold them to an antique dealer in 1995. I saw this one today in one of the local thrift shops and, well, there it is. :-)))

    Not marked, but the patent number connects to a brand called "Mascot", which was made from 1956 up through the 1970s. The maker is A.S. Brown & Co. This one is probably late 1960s. "MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN" is stamped under the mirror. I might go ahead and get a replacement powder puff for it.

    Thanks for looking/loving, CW friends!

      The cosmetic companies made beautiful compacts back in the day. Thanks for sharing this one, Bonnie. :)

      I don't collect compacts but seem to have a few anyway.
      I really like this one.... imagine the pleasure of pulling this from your bag and smiling about it as you powdered off the shine!

      karen - it really is unique. I guess that's supposed to be a mail carrier on horseback. I used face powder and blush many years ago. Not now. I stick to a bit of eye make up because I wear glasses and my eyes tend to fade behind them. I hate lipstick. I can't be bothered turning my face into a "coloring book", LOL!
