Charming powder compact in traditional style. Probably from the 1950s
Whilst it's a beautiful prop and photographs well, with its delightfully timeworn lid, it remains perfectly useable.
The back twists open with a little handle that flips back shut to refill the compact with loose powder and the watch style handle on the side twists to help the powder raise through the little dispenser holes.
So much more environmentally friendly to reuse a powder dispenser, and a vintage one as well.
It measures 7cm just under 3" diame
