THE COMPACT MEASURES APPROX. 5 CMS IN DIAMETER AND IS MADE OF SILVER PLATED METAL WITH MACHINE TURNED PATTERN TO THE BASE. THE LID FEATURES A FABULOUS REVERSE HAND PAINTED DESIGN OF A GLAMOROUS FLAPPER LADY WITH A LITTLE BUDGIE PERCHED ON THE HAND OF HER OUTSTRETCHED ARM. THE PICTURE IS MOUNTED OVER THE GENUINE WING OF A BUTTERFLY WHICH PROVIDES TH SHIMMERING COLOUR OF THE BACKGROUND SKY AND THE LADY'S DRESS.
