This is a vintage cosmetic powder compact made of sterling silver and decorated on the top with the Aztec Calendar in 14K gold. It was crafted circa 1950's. I remember my grandmother powdering her nose with a compact, that she safely stowed in her large purse. There is a very nice mirror on one side, the other side is empty and waiting for cake powder to be added. The two little fabric guards keep the powder from soiling the mirror and one for use. Both are in mint condition. The snap closes tightly.
All of our vintage jewelry is selected by two very experienced and knowledgeable sources in the Twin Cities and consigned through our shop. Let us know if you have other questions!
