A small vintage powder compact - probably 1930s. It is in a gold tone metal (on brass). It has a painted picture on a gold background of two ballet dancers in a classical scene near some water. Decorated with flowers and stone column. The picture is in good used condition for the age - a few tiny spots of missing paint. (The gold background is the same colour throughout - it looks lighter at the top due to reflected light - I am not the best photographer!) The lacquer has worn off the metal a bit and the bottom is not perfect - but there are no major defects. The hinge and catch work well. The mirror has one tiny white spot but otherwise is fine. There is a puff and some solid powder. I can see two letters on the powder - LY - but cannot read the rest. There is no maker's mark. It measures just over 1 3/4 inches. I have tried to cover all the tiny defects but if you need further photos please let me know. It is in better condition than many I have seen recently. 3320 YL
