Vintage Melissa Domed Lucite Perspex Swan Powder Compact 1950s For Sale
Very pretty compact made by Melissa, in a decorated goldtone metal with a large piece of domed lucite, or perspex, containing a swan. The swan is raised within the lucite and surrounded by various decorative features.Melissa specialised in these pieces and this is an excellent example. It looks as though it's hardly been used. No scratches at all to the lucite (in the pictures little marks on the lucite are highlights and reflections from the pattern on the lid). The metal is a little tarnished but this would polish up. Some loss to the gold-tone around the edges. Has its powder sifter and case. Excellent mirror.Marked Melissa, Made in England at the base of the mirror.Measures approx 7 cm across and is approx 1.5 cm deep (the lucite dome is 7mm high).Great example, especially as these are increasingly hard to find.From a non-smoking, pet-free home.Any questions, please ask. Please pay within two days.International Buyers - PayPal only.
