This little guy is a found item. We know nothing about it unfortunately. Really just looking to find out a little bit about him. Wondering if it's a childs toy, or an adult novelty item. The monkey is about 3 inches tall. His limbs all move independently.
When you remove his head, it looks like the "neck" held maybe an eyebrow pencil at one point? On the left side of his body is a little cake of pressed powder (most of it is gone now) along with a tiny powder puff. On the right side of the body is a small mirror.
He feels like he has a metal inner body covered with material and red flocking.
Has anyone ever seen anything like this before??

    How unusual. A ladies purse? No idea. Interesting.

    It looks like a 'Schuco Monkey Rerfume' bottle to me, very cute!...:-)

    Hi! I think Shuco also did compacts this way, as well as perfume; so believe this is the compact version, which is more rare than the perfume? Very nice
