VINTAGE UNUSED & BOXED VOLUPTE "LUCKY PURSE" NOVELTY POWDER COMPACT C1940 Description

OFFERED FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS HIGHLY COLLECTABLE, NOVELTY POWDER COMPACT MADE BY VOLUPTE DURING THE LATE 1940'S AND KNOWN AS THE "LUCKY PURSE".

THIS FIGURAL COMPACT MEASURES A MAXIMUM OF 6.8 CMS BY 8 CMS AND, AS THE NAME SUGGESTS, IS IN THE FORM OF A PURSE OR CLUTCH BAG. THE BACK AND FRONT OF THE CASE IS MADE OF BRUSHED GOLDTONE METAL WITH THE PURSE FLAP AND CATCH IN CONTRASTING HIGHLY POLISHED GOLDTONE METAL.

HINGES AND CATCH ARE FIRM AND SECURE AND THE COMPACT OPENS TO REVEAL A SHAPED, FRAMED GLASS MIRROR UNDER THE LID. THE MIRROR IS CLEAR AND REFLECTIVE. THE INTERIOR OF THE COMPACT IS ALSO POLISHED GOLDTONE AND THE INNER POWDER WELL DOOR IS MARKED VOLUPTE USA. THIS HINGED DOOR OPENS TO ACCESS THE EMPTY POWDER WELL BENEATH AND THE CASE RETAINS THE ORIGINAL VOLUPTE MARKED PUFF.

THIS DESIRABLE AND COLLECTABLE VANITY ITEM IS OFFERED IN EXCELLENT UNUSED CONDITION. IT HAS NO DENTS OR DINGS AND NO TARNISH OR EVEN SCRATCHES TO THE LOVELY GOLDTONE FINISHES. THE ONLY VERY MINOR FLAW I CAN SEE IS THAT THE MIRROR HAS SOME VERY LIGHT AGE CLOUDING BUT STILL RETAINS A GOOD REFLECTION. THE COMPACT COMES COMPLETE WITH IT'S ORIGINAL VOLUPTE PRESENTATION CARD BOX AND THERE IS ALSO A BLACK SATIN DRAWSTRING POUNCH TO CARRY THE COMPACT. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.
