Go Powder Your Nose

13 12 2011

This year’s Christmas gift to myself is this c. 1940s gold-toned metal compact.  When opened,  a mirrored, dual powder compartment is revealed, and the lipstick case can be removed (the residual lipstick in this particular case is a super bright orange-red).  Although somewhat scuffed and tarnished in a few tiny places, the piece is complete (puffs included) and it’s nice to know that it served its purpose.  After all, what’s the point of having things if you don’t use them?
