Very unusual small soft round leather two piece powder puff/compact. The outer case is material lined and contains traces of original pink powder, its plain on the base. The center piece has a small handle you pull to lift out the puffer which is a soft lambswool, the writing on the front of this says "The Lambpuf" in gold, under which it states either, mousleys patents or possibly moubleys patents. Under this it says "Beaverpuf" with Trade Mark above and below. Has a couple of small marks visible in picture and a couple of small nicks around the edge but the stitching is all intact and overall a very nice well made object in good condition.
I have since found the origins of this item, please see below:
