1930's French Art Deco Mechanical Powder Compact 1930's French Art Deco Mechanical Powder Compact

£42.00
Antique 1930's French mechanical chrome powder compact with a checkerboard mirror top.

A beautiful little object that opens to reveal an inner mirror and used powder puff. The powder well has perforated holes, through which powder comes when the side winder is turned. Turned upside down, there is a hinged door in which a removable spring is held.

To use the compact, lift the spring out, add loose face powder and replace the spring and door. Turn the right way up and, as mentioned above, gently turn the winder to release the powder into the well.

Engraved around the outer edge: Montreal Poudre Made in France.
Inside around the mirror: Brevete En France S.G.D.G. Et A L'Etranger USA Patent Pending D.R.F. ang

Brevete S.G.D.G. is an abbreviation for Brevete sans Guaranties du Government - Patented without government guarantees.

Size: 2 x 1/2 inch

Condition: Excellent for its age, has been used but everything is in working order. The powder puff is very caked up but, as it is original, I have left it in.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
