A distinctive and highly collectable vintagecompact made from brass gilt metal. Designed in the shape of a globe, this vanity powder compact is embossed with a very detailed map of the world to its exterior which is in excellent condition.

Almost looks like the 'Snitch' out of Harry Potter!

Hinged at thecentre, the globe opens to reveal the original sifter and powder puff on one side; unfortunately the mirror is missing to the compartment on the other side. The bottom has a small flattened area so that it stands upright and doesn’t roll around!

Unfortunately we do not have the mirror and the lid does not close completely however the exterior is absolute immaculate
