Vintage DORSET 5TH AVENUE Powder Compact
"Teenagers in Love"
Before the age of text messaging, teenagers spent hours on the telephone.
This a classic 1950s theme.
The style is very reminiscent of Hilda Terry,
who did many signed 50s themed compacts for Rex/Dorset 5TH Avenue ~
this one is not signed, so I don't know for sure.
Thiscompact is infairly good condition for it's age.
It shows some wear (some scratches to the top and wear on the bottom)
but the puff, screen, powder and mirror are in good shape,
asis the hinge and closer.
The cover is a bit more cream colored than the photos show.
Pleaselookat the pictures and ask questions if they arise.
I was lucky enough to acquire a number of make-up and solid perfume compacts
as part of a collection from the estate of a very avid compact enthusiast.
There is an amazingassortment of stunning compact powders, rouges, perfumes,
and combination pieces which I will be offering as individual
items and in group lotsover the next few weeks.
Keep checking for your "must haves".
