Made in England c1950s
The lid is beautifully decorated with Mother of Pearl & Abalone Shell.
Carved Taj Mahal to the centre with carved flourish frame.
Engine Turned base.
Inner lid with Mascot crown logo.
This is a very weighty compact as you can imagine with the full shell decoartion.
There is a chip to 2 of the abalone triangles 1 is just a nick the other quite noticable. Ive tried to clean out all the dust from the intricate carving but some still remains.
Wear, scratches & tarnishing to the case. The catch is a little loose due to use so does not close tightly. Inner lid catch in good working order. Very light mist to the mirror.
