Every beauty junkie should own a vintage compact. They are such gorgeous elegant items & oh so timeless.
I’ve been slowly collecting some fabulous ones & on my last visit to my parents my mum gave me two more
The two above are so different from each other & so lovely & unique in their own ways.
The turquoise one is probably around 1930s I think. It’s super slender & features lovely enameling. The sad thing though is the mirror has completely fogged so I can’t actually see my reflection in it. Am thinking of sticking a replacement mirror over the top just so I can use it.
The rectangular compact is my British manufacturer Kigu & is a musical one! I’ve always wanted a musical compact so this is a very welcome addition
Mum also gave me some stunning apple juice bakelite dress clips. So rare to find a pair so I will treasure these dearly!
