Antique, stunning, unique "Evening In Paris", mother of pearl compact case for sale. This case is a one of a kind gorgeous piece for yourself or your loved one for sure. The exterior is made up out of individual mother of pearl tiles & has a exquisite, hidden rectangular & swirled brass photo frame on the top / middle of the case. This was an estate piece, so there are 2 black & white pictures of a ladie & a gentleman inside the frame. It literally has 3 compartments. The first one is the picture frame that opens with an indentation that you pull up with your finger. The photo frame opens and snaps shut tightly for security. Then there is a button that you push in and the case opens up to a square mirror that is in mint condition.The interior is a shiny brass that is also in mint condition. Once inside, the last compartment opens up with the push of a button to a square compact where powder was held. This case is empty. There is a square felt area where you could still put powder into inside of it, if perhaps you would like to use this piece as a compact case to carry in your purse. On top is a powder puff, also square with "Evening In Paris" written in gold on the puff. This case is a square shape, the tiles are all tighlty in place. I am astonished the condition of this compact, as it is in mint condition as it was used as a vanity show piece. There are no chips, no loose tiles, no fading or chipping on the mirror and the interior is mint. The brass inside is gleaming and there is no dings, dents or damage. I did notice one small lifting of brass on the back of the compact & some tiny scratches due to wear in its day only. However nothing that would even be noticed or take away from the beauty of this piece. It is truly amazing. This piece was made in the 1940's, by "Evening In Paris" and is highly collectable, not to mention unique & beautiful. I have never seen one with a picture frame on the top of the middle case. It is genuine, original and quite heavy. Case measures 2.5" inches length x 3" inches width x .5" height off of the table. This piece could use a good polishing.A great piece to show off on your vanity, spoil yourself, add to a collection or give as a gift. Now selling this wonderful, antique ladie's compact case for $110.00 or best offer. Located in Waterloo. Can deliver.
