A great gift for the friend who collects vintage compacts, or for display on your vintage vanity ~
It's easy to see why this magnificent ultra-femme compact was kept & treasured by its original owner~ it's a little work of girlie-girl art, and the perfect glam display piece for your vintage vanity.
Manufactured by Flair Fifth Avenue. Surviving examples of their work seem to be rare. We've found photos of less than 15, but only one that was embellished, and absolutely none like this, which was made of incredibly realistic looking thick squares of mother of pearl, embellished with 16 total still-sparkly, good quality rhinestone crystals. It is smaller and much heavier than the standard sized "pancake" style compact.
Measurements: 3x3x 1/2"
Details: True vintage. Top is in beautiful condition, from the 6 individual "mother of pearl" squares, which are thicker and more dimensional than other typical faux lucite versions found in accessories of the time, to the rhinestone crystals, which are tight, bright & secure. Inside, the mirror is intact with no loss of silvering, powder compartment opening is functional. Flair Fifth Avenue logo pad cover/applicator, though separated, is present. Negligible amount of powder remaining. Minor loss of gold tone finish at interior hinge and on back. Scratches & sticker residue to back. Latch is missing, so it won't close securely. Weight is packaged for shipment.
Ships USPS 1st Class Mail ~
