Up for bid is this Beautiful 1940 San Francisco World Fair Compact
It is shaped very different. The front has raised piece that reads 1940 San Francisco. All is unbelievably in tact but is missing two tiny diamond stones. There is a pin you push at the bottom and it opens up. The mirror is in excellent condition. It still has it's original powder puff that reads Elgin American. Underneath the puff is etched a ladies name and also engraved says Elgin American. There is another pin you press and the compact opens where the powder went. ( love it! ) down at the bottom of the compact is a place where the lid pops open and bright red lips stick is still in it!!! I don't know much about it but it is very unique looking and if you collect might enjoy this beauty!!!! I don't see any problems except there is minimum amount of scuffing along the edge of the compact ( black smudges 0 not bad for 73 years old. All sales final. Please feel free to e-mail for any questions.
