D. Evans & Company made compacts of all shapes, sizes, materials, and finishes between 1920 and 1960. They are highly collectible.
Materials: sterling silver, mirror, fabric puff and mesh screen
Condition: there's some wear to the tri-color treatment on the exterior. the hinge has three sections and the last of these has a turned-up bit. this doesn't affect use or detract from the overall appearance. it's likely fixable with a small pliers, but we didn't want to risk doing damage. the interior is clean and ready to fill with your own loose powder. we'd recommend washing the puff before use. we have not polished the case.
Dimensions: 4.75"/12cm in diameter, weighs 6.1oz/173g
