COMPACTS FOR M'LADY
Compacts for powdering a nose at the turn of the twentieth century was an important part of daily life and glamour, so every woman owned at least one compact. Many of these accessories were plain and practical, designed to hold loose powder, purchased at a local store or pharmacy. But many compacts of the time were far from ordinary. 
 
Long before today's pressed powder was available, ladies carried fancy compacts in their purses to hold their loose powder. Most ladies had an array of pretty compacts to choose from since they were often presented to them as gifts by husbands, lovers and friends.

Collectible compacts are very popular today. Guilloché figurals seem to be at the top of heap as they require the most workmanship. Collectible compacts come in every size, shape and design.
