Andreas Collection Item Detail

Early plastic compact

This pretty deep mauve coloured compact has a stylised arrow across the front although it is missing one small jewel from the middle of the arrow.   I'm pretty sure it is plastic and not bakelite.   The tassells are original.  Inside there is a small round plastic edged mirror, a small circular well for powder - the little puff with an ivory ring is still in place.   There are two little arms which would hold a tiny lipstick however the lipstick is missing.  No makers mark.
