This is the compact my mother always had in her purse when I was growing up. The mirror is broken and the powder all gone, but the original powder puff is still there. The little flower on the top is my favorite thing about this old piece. As a child, I would beg my mother to let me play with it...to recieve an emphatic NO!
This shows the little ring that went over her finger
when she would carry it to a dance or on other occasions.
These pieces are linked with Tom’s Tuesday’s Treasures.
