This is a vintage mother of pearl and gold tone powder compact from - I think - around the middle of the 20th century. The front consists of an alternate squares pattern of mother of pearl pieces. The compact is not marked with a manufacturer but is marked 'made in Switzerland'. It is for loose powder - having a sieve inside - and as it is rectangular it will not take a solid powder refill. Inside it has a beveled mirror which is in good condition. The compact generally is good for the age and the fact it has been used (although not heavily I think). The pieces of mother of pearl are lovely. The inside lid has a criss cross pattern and the bottom is in a different pattern. It measures approx 2 1/8 x 3 inches. I am finding it more difficult to get good mother of pearl compacts - so many are not in a good enough condition. There is no pouch for this compact but one could easily be found or made for it. It does help to protect the compact if it is to be used. Ref: 3327 D41/10
